Older people in the 55-74 age bracket are the fastest growing cohort within the overall homeless population. Homelessness for older people in Victoria grew at a rate of 57% between 2011 and 2016, compared to 11% in Victoria overall. Australia’s ageing population is rapidly growing. It is predicted to more than double from 2010 to 2050. While the population grows, so does the homelessness crisis for some of our most vulnerable citizens.
