Advocates for families and individuals experiencing homelessness have rejected Tony Abbott’s comments that homelessness is a lifestyle choice and an issue that Australia must live with.
Opposition Leader, Mr Abbott said he wouldn’t persist with the government’s goal to halve homelessness by 2020 if he were prime minister because it was an issue beyond governmental control.
Brisbane Micah Projects coordinator, Karyn Walsh says “More and more it is families with children that find themselves without a place to call home. This is unacceptable. We would welcome the opportunity for Mr Abbott to visit our services and meet homeless people so he can understand their reality.”
