In late December 2015, Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG) , in partnership with CHURP, was successful in our funding submission to The Wicking Trust to run an Australia-wide project called The Older Persons Homelessness Prevention Project.
The project aims to build on the work HAAG has done in Victoria to improve housing conditions, provide information on housing options and established the Home at Last – Housing Information and Support Service. No other states in Australia have an organisation like HAAG, or comprehensive services to address the housing problems that older people are facing. This project will work to raise awareness of the housing problems facing older people right across the country and encourage the development of older persons’ housing lobby groups, support services and better housing options in every state in Australia. The Wicking Trust is providing $1.2 million to HAAG and CHURP over 5 years to help achieve these ambitious aims.
