Age Matters: Helping Homeless

Over the last decade, the number of older homeless people increased by 49%. Find out more about Age Matters and how we can help.

Age Matters - donate to the homeless

Age Matters 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.

Help us make change happen

Every dollar you donate supports our work to empower older Australians live free from disadvantage.
