About one million homes across Australia were unoccupied on the recent Census night – one million dwellings without anyone dwelling in them!

At the same time, cost of living and unaffordable housing are brutal realities for so many around us.

Mark Khoo is CEO and co-founder of Welcome Mat, a nifty online service that is here to help the most vulnerable in Australia.

Mark told Hope Mornings that Welcome Mat goes beyond just connecting renters on low or no income with affordable housing options.

Welcome Mat also connects landlords, able to offer subsidised rent, with those who most need it.
