Western Metropolitan

The Victorian Budget 2020/21 invests in Western Metropolitan.

Creating secure, decent jobs

As we rebuild from this pandemic, we need to make sure we’re supporting every suburb.

That means supporting Victorians in our city and our suburbs to train, retrain and find new opportunities.

Helping those hardest hit by this pandemic find work – ensuring not only a job, but certainty and self-belief.

And creating strong, secure and decent jobs for the future – and for our future generations.

This Budget provides a comprehensive plan to make sure no community and no Victorian is left behind.

A place to call home: Victoria’s Big Housing Build

Victoria’s Big Housing Build will give thousands of Victorians the security and stability of a home – and support tens of thousands of Victorians into jobs.

We will invest $6 billion to build more than 12,000 new social and affordable homes, and make housing more accessible and affordable for Victorians.

Taking care of our loved ones

This year, we’ve been reminded of what matters most in life – the health and wellbeing of the people we love. As we begin our State’s recovery, this will continue to be our focus.

That means building a mental health system that Victorians can actually rely on.

It means making sure our healthcare system is there for those who need it.

It means finding new ways to deliver care – particularly for our most vulnerable.

And it means looking after the Victorians who look after us.

It’s a $9 billion investment in this Budget giving every Victorian confidence that their loved ones will be taken care of.

Looking after families

This pandemic has been the hardest thing many of us will ever go through.

We’ve worried about our kids and their future. We’ve worried about our parents and their health.

Some have had to worry about keeping a roof over their head – or keeping the lights on.

We want to make sure that as we recover, we’re giving Victorians less to worry about.

Helping our kids to catch up. Covering the cost of kinder.

Making sure more Victorians don’t have to worry about paying their power bill. Making sure fewer Victorians have to worry about taking sick leave.

This Budget is about looking after Victorians – and looking after their families.

Building strong, connected communities

This budget will build strong, connected communities.

Because we understand – investing in our suburbs means investing in the people who call them home.

A faster commute means more time spent with loved ones. A new school means more certainty for local families.

Every one of these investments is an investment in what matters most: people.

A strong recovery

2020 has shown us what matters most: the safety and security of our families, our kids, our parents. Having confidence in what tomorrow might look like.

And those most basic things – our connection to each other, looking after one another.

It’s why this Budget is dedicated to doing exactly that: looking after people.

As we rebuild, we know we need to bring every suburb – every Victorian – with us.

This Budget is about repair, recovery, and making us stronger than before.
