This chapter has highlighted the demographic characteristics and spatial distribution of older, low-income renters in Australia. Importantly, it has provided projections at the SA2 level to 2032, enabling planners, housing providers and policy makers to understand where to focus the need for innovative housing solutions in the future. The housing choices currently available to this growing cohort of precariously housed older Australians are limited and there is a need to identify alternative housing models that support important and interrelated life domains: shelter, wellbeing, participation and inclusion. In order to provide appropriate housing to this growing cohort, we need to understand who they are and where they are.
