National Children’s Week begins 24 October and across the country it’s important that we celebrate the rights of children and young people to have a safe childhood and the opportunity to interact with others safely.
Today marks World Homeless Day, an annual event held to raise awareness about people who may be experiencing homelessness and draw attention to their local needs.
About 700 new safe places for women and children escaping domestic violence will be built across the country under the Morrison Government’s $60 million Safe Places initiative for new and expanded emergency accommodation.
To have a centralised digital platform for people in need of social, affordable and emergency housing; with the aim to also reduce wait times for social housing is incredible, and will be of great help to people needing assistance. In 2019, housing affordability and homelessness continues to impact the lives of people in our communities across the country. From Townsville to Melbourne, Perth to Darwin and everywhere in between, while the issues associated with homelessness may vary across each city, the end goal remains the same.
