A promise to help end homelessness

Every night 116,000 people in Australia sleep homeless. While another 1.5 million live in serious housing stress. They are our most vulnerable women and men, as well as young families, including over 44,000 children. These people are being forced to live this way because of a chronic shortage of social and affordable housing.

But it’s much more than just a roof over your head. Having a place to call home is linked to well-being. It enables us to lead a life, to do things like wash and cook meals, hold down a job or attend school, and it affects how others see us too. So it should come as no surprise that homelessness results in greater dependence on welfare.

Research shows that there is a deficiency of more than 600,000 social and affordable homes in Australia, this is projected to be in excess of one million by 2036. The crisis can’t be solved by any one organisation or government alone. Instead, this is a call for us all to come forward with a promise of support.
