At Brisbane General & Obesity Surgery, we believe in making the world a better place, which is why we are so passionate about improving the health of our patients and advocating for wellness all over Australia.
But as a company, we also want to enact change in the world around us, so we donate to local charities when we can. In doing so, we hope to pay it forward and provide support to the local community.
There are more than 40,000 Queensland women over the age of 55 who are doing it tough – suffering financial hardship driven by rising living costs, lack of employment, limited or no superannuation and a lack of affordable housing options.
Women experiencing homelessness are significantly less visible and identifiable than their male counterparts, often being described as the ‘hidden homeless’. Vulnerable older women are more likely to be staying with friends, living in a car or physically ‘hiding’.
The Forgotten Women is a unique, grassroots housing initiative for homeless women over 55. The project’s mission is to put a roof over the heads of as many of these vulnerable women as possible. Through the acquisition of suitable properties, The Forgotten Women project will ensure these women have access to secure, safe and affordable housing options that enable them to age in place.
