In November 2017 we launched the ‘We Deliver! Will You?’ campaign to ensure neighbourhood houses received priority funding in the final State Budget prior to the 2018 State Election.

A Campaign Manager, Tania Phillips, was contracted to produce and implement a strategic advocacy campaign. This included the distribution of 2,000 posters and 80,000 postcards across the sector for signing and delivering to local MPs, as well as a social media campaign.

A range of campaign resources were produced to assist the sector in supporting and promoting the campaign:

‘We Deliver! Will You?’ was a massive success in terms of mobilising the sector, and resulted in the State Government pledging $21.8 million across four years – the biggest investment in coordination hours by any Victorian Government.

Since announcing the pledge, the State Government has funded 189 houses to deliver at least 25 coordination hours per week, including the establishment of 16 brand new houses and funding for 11 previously unfunded houses.
