According to new data from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing the rate of homelessness in Australia has increased 4.6% over the last five years and younger and older Australians emerged as groups experiencing increased homelessness in Australia.
The latest estimates reveal more than 116,000 people were experiencing homelessness in Australia on Census night and 8,200 people were ‘sleeping rough’ in improvised dwellings, tents or sleeping out.
Even before hearing these alarming statistics Women’s Housing Ltd were working hard everyday to provide more affordable housing to women at risk of homelessness.
