Homelessness – A role for councils
May 31, 2023
Homelessness in Australia is getting worse. It’s no longer just city centres where people are forced to sleep rough, live in their cars or rely on temporary shelter. The most recent census shows outer suburbs and regional areas are feeling housing pressures like never before.
A Charles Sturt University academic has been exploring how local councils could be the missing link in efforts to solve the homelessness crisis. The academic is Churchill Fellow and PhD candidate Leanne Mitchell who spoke to Community Drive about her research.
