Home Event HOW Movement Plenary Coordination Group October

Event Description

Momentum is building as more and more women over the age 45+yrs grapple with housing. Many won’t be in a position to own their own home and private rental costs and standards contribute to housing stress and greater poverty. Incomes for many will drop to an aged pension only or there is a loss of employment income for an extended period of time. Centrelink’s NewStart payment are grossly inadequate to meet private rental costs.
