Lord Mayors in Canberra to flag homelessness as their capital concern

Lord Mayors of Australia’s capital cities are today calling for action on homelessness, urging the Federal Government to make social and affordable housing in inner cities a key infrastructure priority.

CCCLM Chair, Lord Mayor of Hobart Anna Reynolds said “Australia is in the midst of a housing affordability and homelessness crisis. It is completely unacceptable that in a country as prosperous as ours, over 100,000 people are homeless every night.

“As city leaders we know many people are experiencing extreme housing stress and our staff work with people experiencing homelessness every day.”
