Invest in Homes
The Everybody’s Home campaign has mapped homelessness and you can see concentrations online HERE. I support the Capital Cities Lord Mayors’ call for a ‘Capital Cities Housing First Fund’ to deliver social housing and support services in our capital cities. In Parliament, I’ve followed up new research showing older women are particularly at risk of homelessness: HERE.
We’ve just had Homelessness Week, a good time to remind the federal Treasurer about the need for investment in social and affordable housing to make sure that the pandemic does not leave many more thousands out of work and without a home: HERE.
