At risk of homelessness: preventing homelessness in older culturally and linguistically diverse communities

Refugees Housing for older people CALD Homelessness Australia Victoria

This research is a collaboration between Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) and Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG). The project is a response to an increasing awareness of housing issues for older migrant and refugee communities.

This report makes recommendations based on a detailed and targeted process of community consultation with specific ethnic communities as well as through the examination and analysis of case studies from Home at Last clients and Home at Last service data. The recommendations are designed to assist decision makers in planning inclusive services and to encourage the development and implementation of housing policies and diversity mechanisms that ensure equitable access for older members of culturally diverse communities.
