The Australian Catholic Bishops’ Social Justice Statement for 2020-21, To Live Life to the Full: Mental health in Australia today, has been released ahead of the Church’s Social Justice Sunday, which will be celebrated on August 30 this year. Given the challenges our country and world are facing due to COVID-19, the issue of mental health is very much front and centre for many people.
Member organisation VMCH has announced the green light for a new affordable homes development. VMCH Board Chairman Julien O’Connell AO made the announcement on August 6, during Homelessness Week 2020, indicating that the organisation would build 40 new affordable homes in Ivanhoe, with work expected to commence early next year. 

Before COVID-19 almost 120,000 people were homeless in Australia every night. At present, a million Australians are currently unemployed with many more facing the possibility of losing their jobs and incomes, as well as their homes. Acutely aware of the increasing need of safe and affordable housing, Catholic Social Services Victoria and many of its member organisations have joined the national campaign, Everybody's Home, which released a series of heat maps showing that every electorate in Australia has people who are homeless. The heat maps were released as part of the launch of national Homelessness Week, 2-8 August.
