Submission to NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into Homelessness

The Ageing on the Edge NSW Forum is calling on the NSW government to:

  1. Fund a specialist older person’s housing information and support service that comprises both an early intervention and crisis response, similar to the HAAG Home at Last model in Victoria.
  2. Lower the priority age for social housing eligibility from 80 years as a matter of urgency.
  3. Build 5,000 social and affordable homes per year for 10 years, at least 20% of which should be dedicated to older people.
