Universal Housing, Universal Benefits.

Authors: VCOSS
Published: 31st July 2008

Abstract

Universal Housing, Universal Benefits is about the provision of appropriate, whole-of-life housing that is accessible to and meets the future needs of all Victorians.
Universal housing is housing designed to be used by all people to the greatest extent possible. Homes designed to a universal standard are liveable for the majority of the population and accommodate whatever comes along in life easily and inexpensively.
Given challenges such as Victoria’s ageing population, together with the varying needs across the whole community including those experienced by people with disabilities, families with young children and those suffering chronic illness or short term injury there are social and economic imperatives for the Victorian Government to act now to address universal housing requirements.

This is a discussion paper on universal housing regulation in Victoria by the Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS)
