Wikipedia states;“In 2012 the Australian Council of Social Services conducted a study that shows that in 2010, after taking into account housing costs, an estimated 2,265,000 people or 12.8% of all people including 575,000 children (17.3% of all children) lived in households below the most austere poverty line widely used in international research.”
It is estimated that around 105,000 people per night in Australia will be homeless. This figure equates to 1 in 200 Australians. These are disturbing statistics that highlight the importance of government assistance as well as non-government aid agencies.
