At Risk Forum 2021 Older women facing homelessness in Australia: from awareness to action

In 2020, HAAG hosted an event, At Risk: Older women facing homelessness in Australia at which we launched research that identifies an estimated 405,000 women aged 45 and over to be at risk of homelessness in Australia. This year, we are holding a follow-up event, At-Risk 2021, based on participant feedback that it’s time to shift the agenda from awareness to action.

Older women risk being left behind by policies that fail to address the precarity of their housing. What needs to happen to change this?

At-Risk 2021 will be opened by Senator the Hon Jane Hume. A political panel includes Tanya Plibersek MP, Senator Larissa Waters, Zali Steggall MP and Penny Leemhuis, lived experience advocates. Breakout sessions will focus on housing and family and domestic violence, local-scale solutions, and influencing for political change
