An online event to raise awareness of the issue of older women and homelessness and lobby for government funding for housing and associated services will see the launch of two new reports on the issue:
- At Risk: understanding the population size and demographics of older women at risk of homelessness in Australia, commissioned by Social Ventures Australia, written by Dr Debbie Faulkner and Laurence Lester, University of Adelaide.
- Older women in the private rental sector: unaffordable, substandard and insecure housing, by Dr Emma Power, University of Western Sydney.
This event will be held on Zoom on Tuesday, 4 August from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Brief presentations will be followed by a Q&A.
