Homeless Older Women


Maggie Shambrook - HOW


Older single women are the fastest growing cohort of people experiencing homelessness in Australia, though their plight remains for various reasons invisible to many. Designing solutions to this problem involves first understanding the root causes of the problem, including structural gender inequality, and then identifying the drivers of better outcomes for such women. Not least amongst these is the need for more social and affordable housing, appropriate to their needs.
