An estimated 405,000 women aged 45 and over are at risk of homelessness in Australia. It’s time for action and national leadership. Awareness has been raised but policy responses are silent in addressing older women’s homelessness. If we approach this issue from a gender perspective, what needs to change for older women today and in the future?

At Risk 2021 will be opened by Senator the Hon Jane Hume, Minister for Superannuation, Financial Services and the Digital Economy, Minister for Women’s Economic Security
