Affordable & Safe Housing for Women
** A major WEL priority is advocating for affordable housing for women. Together with other advocacy groups, WEL is demanding:
** A gender-responsive national housing strategy to improve women’s housing outcomes, with actions and measurable targets
** Additional social and affordable housing
** Increase in the maximum rate of Commonwealth Rent Assistance by 50%
** Increased funding for homelessness services and women’s domestic violence refuges, and rapid access to housing and support.
Australia is facing a housing affordability crisis :
** Older women are the fastest growing group experiencing homelessness, and women and children escaping domestic violence are the largest group.
** It’s been estimated that the social housing dwellings needed in Australia could grow to almost three quarters of a million by 2036.
** Many women experiencing violence make the momentous decision to leave their homes, often with children, for their safety.
** Very few are accessing long-term affordable housing – one reason why women return to violent and dangerous situations.
** Women on temporary visas who experience violence and homelessness are ineligible for most forms of assistance and lack avenues to achieve safety and stability.
** For older women, problems in accessing affordable housing are often the result of a lifetime of economic disadvantage due to the gender pay and superannuation gaps, women’s greater responsibility for caring for children and other family members and the long-term economic impact of domestic violence.
