Who are Australia’s hidden homeless?
Even if we don’t see it, homelessness is all around us. Hidden homelessness can happen to anyone, through no fault of their own.
The increased cost of living, impact of domestic and family violence, mental health issues and the lack of affordable housing for vulnerable people - these are all factors contributing to a homelessness crisis in Australia.
Every night, over 122,000 Australians are homeless1 - living in their cars, a garage or other temporary, often insecure accommodation.
