Our research and development project in Queensland is well under way. So far Debbie Faulkner has been developing some of our fundamental research based on key census data on homelessness and housing stress and Jeff Fiedler has been getting to know government housing policies, community housing sector and meeting many older people at risk of homelessness.
Our project in Queensland is kindly supported by COTA Queensland and we have found many great alliances with organisations such as Shelter Queensland and Tenants Queensland. We will continue our research phase towards the end of 2019 and into 2020 with a report produced in the near future.
If you are an older person living in Queensland and would like to have your say please contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jeff is also keen to speak to community housing providers and homelessness support services so if your agency would like to participate in the research please get in touch with Jeff who is now traveling to Queensland regularly and is keen to meet and hear your views.
Ageing on the Edge is a project of Housing for the Aged Action Group, University of Adelaide and the Wicking Trust
