Homeless in Australia

Australia is a reasonably well off country, with quite good social services and welfare resources. However, the country still has a number of homeless people, although normally about 90% of the official number actually have somewhere to live. This accommodation may not be ideal, or with long term security.  Living with friends and relatives is the most common form of Homelessness for young people.
