Submission to the Inquiry into Sustainable Employment for Disadvantaged Jobseekers


Homelessness occurs at the intersection of structural forces, like housing affordability or inadequate income supports, and personal disadvantage, like financial disadvantage, family violence, or disability.

Homelessness can be a consequence of changes that reduce a person’s waged income, and it also makes engaging in work more difficult. People who face other barriers to employment, including poverty, disability or racism, are also more likely to experience homelessness, which then further entrenches their disadvantage.
