“More than 142,500 Australians are on the waiting list for social housing, and half of those who were finally given a home in 2016-2017, were already homeless. For those who were homeless or at risk of homelessness, over half spent more than three months on the waiting list. For those not yet on the brink of homelessness, half spent more than two years on the waiting list. The need for social housing will only grow, from 1.3 million to 1.7 million households by 2025.”
