Statistics

This number includes more than 43,000 young Australians below 25 years old and more than 18,000 people above 55 years.

Take the initiative and Share Your Ideas to Fight Homelessness

Homelessness is affecting Australian society in numerous ways and thus making it a serious social problem. It not only causes financial downturn, but also increases the percentage of poverty, and causes family dysfunction. However, you can be a part of Homeless Info and fight against the problem for the development of the country.

Causes of Homelessness

Homelessness is the result of the collective impact of several factors, rather than a single reason. Economic and societal issues, individual circumstances and systems failures are the real culprits behind this problem.

Domestic Violence

This is one of the leading causes of homelessness in the country, and almost 25% of total homeless people are the victim of family violence.

Financial Problems

One of the apparent reason for homelessness. Financial difficulties make it impossible for some people to have their shelter.

Housing Stress

There is a severe shortage of housing that is safe, stable and affordable. This housing problem is highly responsible for homelessness.

Addiction

No one can deny the role of alcohol and drugs addiction play for homelessness in any country and Australia is no different.

Our Events and Volunteers

Homeless Info is more than just a medium where people can read the latest news and gather information, data, and facts on homeless people in Australia. Here, we also conduct seminars and workshops across the nation to educated people about the homelessness and how every individual can make some valuable contribution.
In our seminars and workshops, our volunteers get involved with the concerned group and discuss the ways to tackle the problem of homelessness. Not only that, but they also talk to homeless people in different regions and understand their problems. Then they discuss the issue with various groups and NGOs and try to solve them.

The Australian States with Maximum Homeless People

You can find homeless people in Australia in almost every region, but there is some place that has the maximum number of such people.

New South Wales (37,715)

Victoria (24,817)

Queensland (21,671)

The Insecurities Homeless People Face

Homeless people face different challenges, emotional as well as physical. And these challenges make it almost impossible for them to get back on their feet.

Food and Shelter Insecurity

Homeless people do not have any place to call home. These people spend nights in the streets, homeless shelters, abandoned buildings, etc. They also struggle for daily meals.

Income Insecurity

The homeless people usually don’t have a source of income, and that factor does not allow them to save money and find a home on rent.

Healthcare Insecurity

As these people do not have a source of income, healthcare is a massive challenge for them. Lack of medical attention leads to diseases.

Basic Need Insecurity

Homeless people in Australia cannot fulfil their basic needs like warmth, water, food, medicines, dry clothes, etc.

What Can You Do?

To changes the scenario of homelessness in society, we need thousands of people and their support, but everything will begin from the efforts and attitude of an individual. So, you should know what you can do.

Show Respect

If you come across a homeless person, show them respect and politely talk to them. They often experience the loss of dignity that further makes their situation difficult.

Donate

Cloth, shoes and food are those things that homeless people always require. So, whenever possible, donate such items. You can also give blankets, coats, cups and utensils.

Educate Yourself

If you want to make a difference in their life, first you need to understand their problems and the reason that leads to homelessness. And you can do that by educating yourself.
