Our policy and advocacy approach
SVA’s policy and advocacy practice was developed in recognition of the unique potential for impact that comes through influencing government.
We focus this work in areas where our expertise, insights and networks line up with a political and policy environment that is ripe for change.
We do this by
Distilling our learnings
We turn insights from SVA's work, and the work of our partners, into actionable policy.
Connecting and collaborating
We bring together and mobilise unlikely allies, to turn policy solutions into effective practice.
We believe everyone should be able to participate in the community and economy in a way that is fulfilling to them.
We are working to ensure there is an adequate supply of stable and affordable housing for all.
