Housing and Homelessness

Everyone has the right to secure, affordable, safe and accessible housing. In Frankston City, and across Australia, there is decreasing availability of suitable and affordable housing. People experiencing unstable housing can be disadvantaged in several ways, finding it difficult to access education, employment and engage in community life.

Homelessness can happen to anyone, at any point in their lives. A range of factors can contribute, such as losing a job, suffering illness, mental health problems, family violence, bereavement or relationship breakdown. A lack of affordable housing is a contributing factor in homelessness.

Council is committed to advocating for improved housing affordability.
