Having to ask for somewhere to live, it’s difficult indeed’: Single, female, homeless. Australia’s shameful crisis – Join the Discussion

About this Event

Property developer turned passionate advocate Robert Pradolin GAICD joins us to share why the growing trend of older women becoming homeless will impact governments and communities in the near future and how we as Project & Procurement Professionals can turn the tide.

Women aged 65-74 describing themselves as homeless increased by 51% in the first half of last decade.

As Founder of Housing All Australians, recent winners of a Hesta Community Impact Award, Robert, has taken on the plight of older homeless women and he is on a mission to harness the power of the private sector to help fix it.

Robert will speak at The Pro Forum Community in May. “As a man, I was actually quite embarrassed when I learned that older women were becoming our fastest growing cohort of homeless . Everyone has a mother or a sister or daughter,” he points out. “So you can relate to the fact it could be any one of them.”

Join this tough discussion and discover what is being done in other states and what we can do to stem the tide in our own backyards.

Noting this is not solely an Australian issue, we look forward to welcoming our Kiwi neighbours to the discussion as well.
