  • Exiting Homelessness and Sustaining Housing

    Associate Professor Cameron Parsell was awarded a competitive Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) to produce new theoretical and policy relevant knowledge about what people do to exit chronic homelessness and sustain housing.
  • Evaluation of the Mental Health Demonstration Project

    The two-year Mental Health Demonstration Project commenced in July 2015 to test a new integrated housing, mental health and welfare initiative to assist people in social housing to sustain their tenancies whilst managing mental illness or related complex needs.

    ISSR researchers provided an interim process evaluation for the Queensland Department of Housing and Public Works to determine how the Project was being implemented across multiple agencies in the Fortitude Valley and Chermside Housing Service Centre catchment areas. We reviewed documents and guidelines and conducted interviews with program managers and key informants to assess the effectiveness of interagency collaboration and whether the Project had strengthened local response capabilities.

    We also evaluated the outcomes of the Project using client data managed under a Client Outcomes Protocol designed to support open data-sharing between the Queensland Government and our research team whilst maintaining client confidentiality.
  • Aboriginal Lifeworlds, Conditionality, and Housing Outcomes

    This study addresses the issues of obtaining an optimum balance between conditionality (especially tenancy rules and duties) and preserving Indigenous social capital, so as to enable an effective ‘recognition space’ between tenants’ life values and housing managers’ rule structures, to achieve positive housing outcomes within current Australian policy constraints.
  • Defining the Impact of Regionalism on Aboriginal Housing and Settlements

    The aim of this project is to analyse, quantify and improve our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing needs by developing an innovative regional approach to needs assessment, that considers cultural protocols, access to services, sustainable design and regional governance.
