IRT Foundation: Helping Homeless
We empower older Australians to live free from disadvantage
IRT Foundation tackles homelessness, ageism and social isolation head on. Why? Because disadvantage doesn’t discriminate.
15,000 people over the age of 55 are homeless on any given night.
2015-16 saw a 300% increase in the number of older women in NSW couch surfing or sleeping in cars.
64% of homeless older Australians will die within 5 years.
We’re working to change this, and you can help. Support our work or donate online.
