Stop discrimination on the basis of homelessness and irrelevant criminal record
Petition Background (Preamble):
The experience of discrimination is destructive for individuals experiencing homelessness and for society more generally. Discrimination can lead to and further entrench homelessness in cases where it prevents individuals from securing accommodation and accessing services. Discrimination can also lead to negative health consequences for individuals who feel anxiety, depression and a sense of loss of control as a result of being discriminated against.
