Housing for the Aged Action Group exists to work towards the alleviation of housing related poverty for older Australians. We offer free advice to older people who need information and support about accommodation issues.
Our new service aims to assist older people who live in insecure, unsafe or inappropriate housing with a major focus on addressing the plight of thousands of older people struggling to survive in private rental housing.
We are very pleased to announce that the Department of Human Services have agreed to continue funding our Home at Last service until June 2015! Home at Last was originally funded in April 2012 for an 18 month period as a pilot project to develop prevention and early intervention strategies for older people at risk of homelessness. This has been part of the state government’s Homelessness Action Plan and the Homelessness Innovations Action Projects.
