Victims of Domestic violence rely on social housing options in order to safely separate from abusive cohabitations. However, the supply of social housing is increasingly scarce, making it difficult for many victims to separate.

Alan Morris, Professor at the Institute of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Technology Sydney, joins us to discuss social housing availability and the benefits they provide.

If you are experiencing abuse or violence it is not your fault. There are support services that can help you. If your life is in danger, call 000. For 24/7 domestic violence counselling call the National Sexual Assault, Family & Domestic Violence Counselling Line on 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732).
