Women over the age of 55 are the fastest growing cohort of homeless in Australia and current research estimates that there are over 400,000 women over the age of 45 at risk of homelessness. Many of these women have led productive lives and have had conventional housing histories. However, they find themselves facing homelessness in later life. How did we reach this point of crisis?

‘Making Home’ will tell the stories of women who find themselves in this situation. We will unpack the issues and policies that have led to this crisis, talk to people who are working to prevent it and look at current research into providing homes for these women at risk.
