For 1 in every 200 Australians, homelessness is a reality.
As of 2019, Byron Shire and surrounding areas have the highest number of people who sleep rough in NSW outside of Sydney. Research shows that a growing demographic of homeless individuals are women. Women living in these circumstances often face a degrading choice – food or pads? With many substituting pads and tampons for items such as socks, tissues and rags. No woman should have to choose.
