Poverty in Australia

First Nations Peoples experience significant disadvantages compared to non-Indigenous Australians, particularly in respect of housing, health, life expectancy, education, employment, and imprisonment (largely a social determinants issue).

Historically, First Nations Peoples have been over represented among those experiencing homelessness, insecure housing, and those seeking assistance with housing. By not having access to affordable, secure and appropriate housing, the disadvantage and ensuing social exclusion suffered by First Nations Peoples only compounds further.
