Affordable, Accessible and Sustainable: Developing liveable communities

We think there should be a dedicated area of government that can represent the interests of the community sector within the Victorian government. That's why we've created a new Office for the Community Sector that will give the community sector a very strong voice in government.

The Virtuous Circle: Community - Government - Policy - Action

There's a pressing need for us to think more about fundamental change; change that focuses on prevention, and change that opens up opportunities to people who are excluded. Labor want to do more to make Victoria a fairer place. A fairer Victoria is good for everyone.
