National Development Worker, Housing for the Aged Action Group
Jeff Fiedler is National Development Worker at Housing for the Aged Action Group (HAAG) in Melbourne. HAAG is an older persons member based organisation that also operates an early intervention information and support service called Home at Last that assists the growing numbers of older people at risk of homelessness.
Jeff’s role is based around the Older Persons Homelessness Prevention Project that is a partnership with Dr Debbie Faulkner at the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning (CHURP) and funded by the Wicking Trust. The Project aims to increase awareness of the need for improved responses on older persons housing and services across Australia.
