BBHTC housing researcher Bev James says homelessness among older Kiwis can often be “hidden”

“We’re not talking about these people necessarily being visible like rough sleeping or on the streets. They’re more likely to be in situations where they’re sharing with others in difficult circumstances. “They’re under sufferance there or they’re in sleepouts, garages, sheds, non-residential dwellings like farm buildings or commercial buildings.””
