Ageing with no address

This presentation looks at trends in homelessness for the Australian population aged 55 years and over, using Census data from 2006, 2011 and 2016. Areas detailed include: - Specialist Homelessness Services - Households in housing stress - Increase in homelessness for the population aged 55 years+ - Proportion of home owners with a mortgage and those living in private rental market. If home ownership continues to decline for population aged 65+ and there is no growth in social housing rental share (i.e. the case where all non-homeowners will be reliant on the private rental market) then possible demand for affordable private rental housing in 40 years will be 1 million households; about 20% of all older households.
