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)

People turned away from government-funded specialist homelessness accommodation 2009-10 /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Cat. no. HOU 248 Bibliography : p. 20Summary: This report presents data on the people turned away from government-funded specialist homelessness accommodation in 2009-10. The data indicate that government-funded specialist homelessness agencies are operating to capacity and are unable to completely meet the demand for their accommodation. Some groups, such as families, experience more difficulty than others in obtaining accommodation. When new requests for accommodation are considered on any given day, 58% of all people who sought immediate accommodation were turned away. New requests, however, comprise only 4% of the total demand for accommodation. When new requests plus all people currently in accommodation are considered, 2% of all people who sought immediate accommodation were newly accommodated on any given day and 2% were turned away. The rate of turn-away was similar to that reported in recent years.Availability: (1)
