Most tenants won't know where they will be living in a year. Many fear eviction if they raise issues with their landlord, eg need for repairs. Unfair residential tenancy laws increase the risk the homelessness.

Homelessness is mainly caused by poverty, unaffordable rent and family violence, not personal failings. Too many people are homeless and waiting for social housing. We can help those in need by building more social housing.

Estimates say for every 100 units of public housing built, approx 80 jobs were created in construction & 30 more ongoing jobs were created to support people in the housing. Investment in social housing = nation building

No surprise. Rents are unaffordable. There are no properties affordable for people on a pension or benefits. None. We need more social housing for our most vulnerable Australians.

For a few years, there was a tent sitting in this out-of-the way little pocket along the Merri Creek. Now it’s gone. I hope things have got better for whoever lived there, and that this place did not become unsafe or that they were moved on

Homeless myth #2. Homelessness is not a choice. It's the sad outcome of people being priced out of the market and a chronic lack of social and ! Homes end homelessness.

Growing in Europe is being driven by rising and decreased - same as Australia. But Finland is fixing it because they house people. All the nations building more shelters are going backwards!

A rising type of homelessness- more ppl living in shoddy, unstable, often unsafe places. Again, shows need for more social and decent affordable housing.
