Transcript: POVERTY & HOMELESSNESS Youth Leadership Masterclass What is poverty? - Inability to afford essential goods and services. - Miss out on opportunities and resources such as adequate health and dental care, housing, education, employment opportunities, food and recreation. What is Poverty? How is Poverty Measured? How is poverty measured? Can be measured in different ways: - Measure of wealth and income using poverty lines. - Looking at essential items people are missing out on through lack of income. In Australia the poverty line (50% of median income) for a single adult is $426.30 a week. For a couple with 2 children, it is $895.22 a week. Poverty in Australia 2.9 million people live below the poverty line, 17.7% of all children. 116,000 of those people are actually homeless and 28,758 are under 18. Poverty in Australia Cost of living Child Poverty - 731,00 children living in poverty in Australia. - 1 in 6 under 15. What does living in poverty look like? - 1 in 5 can’t afford medical treatment or medication. - 50% can’t afford up to date school items and 56% didn’t have money to join school activities. - 3 in 5 couldn’t afford an internet connection. - 2 in 5 could not afford fresh fruit and veggies every day. - 1 in 4 could not afford three meals a day for their child. Child Poverty Poverty cycle Poverty can be caused by major inequalities built into the structure of Australian society. Causes of Poverty Work and income - Hard to get work in some parts of Australia. - Social security payments are not high enough. - These contribute to unequal disadvantage across Australia. Work and income Education - Families with low levels of education often cannot afford to offer their children education opportunities. -Low education is linked to unemployment and, consequently, to the risk of living in poverty. - Studies show those who have dropped out of high school as less likely to find jobs and have on average lower weekly wages. Education Housing - Housing in Australia unaffordable for most leaving people in debt and impacting a person's ability to find work and education. As these opportunities exist largely in areas with high housing prices. - A large proportion of low income households experience "housing stress", which is when over 30% of income is spent on rent or mortgage payments. - Poor housing negatively affects a person health and well-being. Housing Health - People living in poverty commonly suffer greater levels of physical and mental illness. - High stress associated with living in poverty can contribute to behavior which leads to health risks such as smoking and poor diet. - Increasing costs in health care makes it harder for people to afford treatment and medications. Health Services Improving access to affordable community services is an important poverty prevention strategy which helps disadvantaged people to fully participate in social and economic life. These services are often under strain. Services Why inequality is bad for Australia Why is inequality bad? - Inequality undermines the fairness of our economic system and leads to divisions within society. - Wealthier people can afford not to rely on shared services therefore have less interest in supporting shared services. This leads to a more divided society. Homelessness WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU? What is homelessness? Homelessness Homelessness is ‘inadequate access to safe and secure housing’. This exists where the only housing to which a person has access: - Is likely to damage the person’s health - Threatens the person’s safety - Marginalises the person by failing to provide access to adequate personal amenities or the normal economic and social support of a home, or - Places the person in circumstances that threaten or adversely affect the adequacy, safety, security and affordability of that housing. Types of homelessness Types of Homelessness Primary Homelessness - Secondary Homelessness - Tertiary Homelessness CAUSES OF HOMELESSNESS Causes of homelessness The leading cause of homelessness is relationship breakdown Accommodation issues and financial difficulties are the second and third highest contributors. Underlying factor? WHAT'S THE UNDERLYING FACTOR? Lack of support Homelessness can happen to almost anyone... What's happening in the local community?
