Publications and Submissions

Much of ACT Shelter’s advocacy work involves responding to government reviews and inquiries through written submissions or reports, though sometimes feedback is given verbally.  Sometimes, ACT Shelter initiates projects on particular issues that require more in-depth information on which to base a standpoint or view.

The policy analysis and research work for these publications is mostly undertaken by ACT Shelter’s Policy Coordinator or sometimes by one-off contracted policy professionals with expertise in a certain field. Consulting with members is usually an important element of the primary research for each project.
