A predictable crisis: older, single women as the new face of homelessness /

by Sharam, Andrea.

Publisher: Hawthorn, Vic. Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology June 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The dissolution of partnerships and re-partnering involve serious risks for women and their children, according to this paper. This significant gender-based economic and social problem has emerged on the back of demographic change. A recent national study of women and housing used ABS demographic modelling to show that a sizeable proportion of female baby boomers are single, poor and facing significant housing insecurity, which suggests that the new face of homelessness will be single older women by virtue of a combination of the sheer number of women in the cohort, their poorer economic status and social changes that occurred in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. This forecast appears as a startling departure from the existing statistics. More women than men use the homelessness service system, but this reflects the response to family violence which is aimed at women. ; Single women (as a group distinct from those seeking assistance because of violence) receive only about 4% of the national funding for homelessness. Single women are currently but minor players in the homelessness statistics, which can be explained by the historical size of this cohort, but this could shift from a trickle to a roar in the space of generation".Availability: (1)

It could be you : female, single, older and homeless /

by McFerran, Ludo | Homelessness NSW.

Publisher: Strawberry Hills, N.S.W. Homelessness NSW 2010; Older Women's Network (Australia) 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2010Summary: This report documents a collaborative project which sought to interrogate the experience of older women and the reflection of that experience in policy. The project sought an inclusive homelessness definition, and to build a more robust knowledge base through which to inform policy and service delivery to this group. The study was prompted by evidence of increasing numbers of older women entering for the first time the homeless population, and the concern of the homeless service system that demand could not be met. To put the experience of these older women into context the study examined the evidence of the combined impact of housing trends affected by changing demographics, the impact of ageing, and entrenched financial disadvantage on women. Combined with the qualitative evidence from the thirty one homeless older women, the study concluded that being female, older, and single is to be at housing risk.Availability: (1)

Women, domestic and family violence and homelessness : a synthesis report. /

by Tually, Selina | Faulkner, Debbie | Cutler, Cecile | Slatter, Michele | Flinders Institute for Housing, Urban and Regional Research.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Bibliography: p. 66-76 Prepared for the Office for Women Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Family & early years Into & out of workSummary: "Domestic and family violence related homelessness is a widespread and growing problem in Australia. However, establishing the true extent of domestic and family violence is difficult. There is no typical woman who becomes homeless because of domestic and family violence. Such violence can and does affect women of all ages, cultural, social and economic backgrounds, and women living in all sorts of relationships. The election of the Rudd Government and its commitment to the development of a ten year plan to address homelessness in Australia provides promise that women and children affected by domestic and family violence, and the threat and reality of homelessness, will be given greater prominence in the public policy arena. > This report investigates the support and accommodation needs of women (and children) affected by domestic and family violence. It finds that there is no one solution to domestic and family violence related homelessness. There is also no easy to roll out solution. This is because there is no one pathway into homelessness for all women affected by domestic and family violence and many women cycle in and out of homelessness and crisis accommodation." -- Office for Women websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
