Making Home : A Discussion to Educate and Prevent Homelessness of Women

Making home

The current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions have brought up a lot about home. For our safety and the safety of the broader community we have been advised that if we can stay at home, we should do so. But what does this mean for those in precarious situations who are vulnerable to losing their homes?

What of those for whom home is no longer a refuge, not an option or not available?

Single women over the age of 45 are the fastest-growing homeless cohort in Australia and with the pandemic restrictions hitting women particularly hard, we’ll be discussing how easy it can be for women to slip into homelessness, the policies that aim to make a difference and what is being done to help women who need homes find homes. This is an inclusive event for everyone and a great opportunity to discuss women and housing.
