Homelessness is fixable. We need to guarantee this human right.
This August 7-13, just after National Homelessness Week, I’ll be walking to raise funds for the 6,000 people experiencing homelessness in South Australia.
The housing market is broken. It’s time to think differently, because housing is a human right.
Decades of governments have rigged the private housing market with tax breaks that favour big developers and rich property speculators – our current housing system is worsening inequality.
Homelessness is on the rise, and today people face decade-long waits for access to affordable housing.
We need to support, and demand more funding for, organisations like Hutt St Centre, which has 65 years of trust in this space, to shift this dialogue and help people in need in the meantime.
