Uniting Annual Report 2020-2021

Sanctuary for older homeless women

In FY21, Uniting repurposed a vacant aged care building as short-term shelter for homeless women. Dozens of new beds and furnishings were donated and installed to support older women needing a safe place to sleep, while we await approval to develop a new aged care facility.

At Uniting, we don’t let an empty building go to waste. With the planning process for the redevelopment of this aged care facility likely to take a couple of years, it’s a great opportunity to support a particularly disadvantaged, marginalised and growing cohort.”
