Older women are the fastest growing group of homeless people in Australia. A recent study estimated that 240,000 women aged 55 or older are at risk of homelessness nationally, as are another 165,000 women aged 45-55.
On Monday 16 November, the NSW Opposition held an online forum on Older Women's Homelessness, hosted by:
- Trish Doyle MP, Shadow Minister for Women and the Prevention of Domestic Violence
- Jo Haylen MP, Shadow Minister for Seniors
- Ryan Park MP, Shadow Minister for Health and Housing
