Housing Related Challenges for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities

Older people from CALD backgrounds make up around 25 per cent of all older people in Australia. Though older CALD communities face many of the same barriers to housing experienced by the older population as a whole, such as inappropriate, insecure and unaffordable housing, they are also more likely to encounter additional challenges. Making sure that these vulnerable seniors have access to independent and culturally and linguistically appropriate information, advice and advocacy is crucial if they are to avoid homelessness.
