We know women need our services now more than ever.
Due to the impact of the devastating bush fire season and COVID-19, unemployment is at a record high of 7% in Australia. Between February and May of 2020, 482,000 women lost employment.
Unemployment and financial insecurity are strongly linked to homelessness and experiences of domestic violence.
Disadvantage comes in many forms, but experiences of hardship usually have isolation, fear, instability and lack of choice as common factors.
Women over 55 are the fasted growing cohort of people experiencing homelessness in Australia. Women’s under representation in the workforce is a crisis with long term negative economic and social impacts.
