Safe and sound? How funding mix affects homelessness support for Indigenous Australians

Policy Online carries a link (16.12.16) to an Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute report outlining how the mix of government and private funding of community housing and emergency accommodation influences the provision of homelessness services to Indigenous Australians and its outcomes.

'Indigenous Australians are 14 times more likely to become homeless than other Australians, and their homelessness situations are likely to be more severe. This research examines the extent to which the needs of homeless and at-risk Indigenous Australians are being met.

'This report forms one part of the research program in the AHURI Inquiry into the funding of homelessness services in Australia, which aims to understand the mix of government and non-government funding and how the funding of services that support people who are experiencing homelessness influences service provision and outcomes for those people.'
