Developing Effective Services in Response to Indigenous Homelessness

This project is designed to provide a research evidence base to inform service and practice responses to homeless and public-place dwelling Indigenous people, including rough sleepers. It will involve identification and critical analysis of a number of different types of service responses to public-place dwelling and homeless Indigenous people in three selected regional centres, with a focus on those regional centres away from south-East Australia that have a majority or a major proportion of Indigenous people in their profile of homeless people.

As part of the Homesless Research Partnership Agreement with the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, this project seeks to focus on the specialised service responses required to obtain effective outcomes for Indigenous people who are homeless.
