A world full of cruelty, broken pleasure and pain.

An issue involving homelessness: Kicked out of home, alone and scared.

Being ‘kicked out of home’ is an issue that predominantly affects young people, though Homelessness Australia is hearing reports that older Australians are being forced from their homes by children, step-children and even carers.

Young people report being ‘unable to live at home’ or ‘needing time out from family’ as common reasons for seeking assistance from homelessness services.
Being ‘kicked out’ is a frightening, unnerving and unsettling experience for young people even when the homelessness that results is only a temporary experience.
