Submission into the Victorian Government Inquiry into Homelessness
December 4, 2019
OCAV’s submission into the Victorian Government Inquiry into Homelessness is based on our understanding of what older Victorians need in housing.
While 73 per cent of all older Australians own their home (Productivity Commission 2015, p9), only 47 per cent of OCAV residents owned their home before moving into an OCAV village.
The remaining 53 per cent of OCAV residents were either homeless or vulnerably housed while living with family or friends, in private rentals, public housing or in temporary accommodation.
Keith White, who had heart surgery two years ago, reckons he’s better now than he has ever been. He puts his state of health and well-being down to the life he has found at Currie Park, OCAV’s village in Euroa.
