This month RAAG discussed HAAG’s upcoming delegation to Canberra and a few RAAG members recorded interview clips to be made into a short video to share with MPs to help them understand the lived experience of housing stress and homelessness for older people.
Members answered four questions:
- What is one thing you want MPs to understand about the current housing crisis?
- What kind of housing would actually be suitable for you (socially, financially, physically, accessibility, community, location)?
- Why is it important for MPs to hear people’s lived experiences?
- What does home mean to you?
If you want to share your answers to these questions with your local MP, you can find their name and how they vote on different topics here: theyvoteforyou.org.au/
