Housing.
Support.

Recovery.

No one is immune to a change in circumstances that can leave accommodation unaffordable, unsuitable or unstable. 

We help women prevent or resolve homelessness through tailored support, and access to safe and affordable accommodation.

What is homelessness?

Homelessness is a lack of one or more of the elements that represent ‘home’—including a sense of security, stability, privacy, safety, and the ability to control living space. It can look like: couch surfing, living in a car, pet-sitting, house-sitting or over-staying with friends and family. In fact, only 6% of people experiencing homelessness in Australia are sleeping on the streets.

Older women—those aged 55 and over— are the fastest growing cohort of homeless Australians.

What is mental ill-health?

Mental ill-health is an issue that affects all of us at some point in our lives. Nearly half of all Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. So, ‘mental ill-health’ is an umbrella term that includes many different types of experiences that range from mild to severe in their effect on us.

It can be brought on by financial issues, relationship strain, problems at work, or other life challenges. Experiences that are highly stressful or traumatic can also have a big impact on our mental health.

Signs that you may be experiencing mental ill-health include changes in your eating or sleeping pattern, feeling overwhelmed, feeling more emotional than usual, having difficulty thinking clearly or making decisions, or noticing that you are not coping like you were before.

Our impact

“Upon my hospital discharge I was destitute and hopeless.

I had no one to turn to when you gently and lovingly guided me towards stable housing, much needed clinical support and reassurance that I’m not alone and voiceless.”

Did you know the housing crisis is having a profound effect on Australia’s skill shortages?

Australian employers are having significant difficulty filling job vacancies, which is impacting the country’s productivity and economic growth.

The housing crisis is playing a critical role in this issue. A well-functioning labour market depends on job mobility — meaning workers are able to move locations to fill vacancies. The lack of affordable housing is severely limiting this, putting stress on the labour market.

To help address our skill shortages, more social and affordable housing in regional areas is needed to increase the supply of housing, as well as decrease rental stress and homelessness.

Renowned feminist, journalist, UTS Business School Professor and Paul Ramsay Foundation Fellow, Anne Summers AO, recently released a report revealing the stark choice facing many Australian women who have experienced domestic violence at the hands of their partner: stay and risk the violence continuing or even escalating, or leave and face the high probability of a life of ‘policy-induced poverty’?

The Choice: Violence and Poverty reports findings, based on never-before published customised data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, signalled the need for urgent policy changes to ensure that women who wanted to leave violent relationships could do so without being forced into poverty, with devasting implications for them and their children that may last for generations.

The new Governments recent tabling of their paid domestic violence leave bill is a step in the right direction, but much more needs to be done.
