Finding a Suitable Home for Older People at Risk of Homelessness in SA

A report released today based on the latest 2016 Census is showing a rapidly rising number of older people at risk of homelessness in South Australia. This research, a partnership between Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG) and The University of Adelaide’s Centre for Housing Urban and Regional Planning (CHURP) and funded by The Wicking Trust, has found that a significant number of older people in the private rental market in South Australia are living in housing poverty.

The report called Finding a Suitable Home for Older People at Risk of Homelessness in South Australia has been handed to Council on the Ageing South Australia’s (COTA SA)) Older Persons Housing Roundtable and the South Australian Government for urgent action.
