Māori, Pasifika, LGBT and disabled over-represented in Auckland homeless count


More than 3600 people were living without shelter or in temporary accommodation on one night in Auckland last year, and nearly 40 per cent of those were Māori. Figures released today from Ira Mata Ira Tangata: Auckland’s Homeless Count show a disproportionate amount of Māori, Pasifika, LGBT and disabled people make up Auckland’s rough sleepers. The Point in Time Count took place across the Auckland region on the night of September 17, 2018. Ran by Auckland Council and Housing First Auckland Collective, the count sought to improve understanding of the demographics and experience of people living without shelter and in temporary accommodation.
