Ep5 Maggie Shambrook,

Founding member HOW (Housing Older Women)

Maggie Shambrook, founding member of HOW (Housing Older Women) looks at  Systemic Issues & Solutions in the face of rising numbers of homeless older women.

Older single women are the fastest growing cohort of people experiencing homelessness in Australia. Designing solutions to this problem involves understanding the root causes of the problem, including structural gender inequality, then identifying the drivers of better outcomes for such women. Not least amongst these is the need for more social and affordable housing, appropriate to their needs.
