Indigenous Housing and Homelessness Policy, Practice and Research Network

A national network

The Indigenous Housing and Homelessness Policy, Practice and Research Network was funded by the Australian Government, in support of their commitment to Closing the Gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

AHURI engaged a variety of organisations with an interest in Indigenous housing and homelessness policy, practice and/or research to:

  • effect an improved transfer of research evidence into policy development or practice change
  • identify gaps in research evidence and share in the responsibility of investing in such research
  • share policy and practice experience of what works and why
  • create opportunities for peer-to-peer critique of policy, practice and research.

Activities included the development of a set of information sheets that examine specific housing issues and identify associated policy solutions by drawing on AHURI’s research evidence. The Network also ran a series of regional meetings around Australia.

Meeting reports

The inaugural regional meeting of the Network, Better housing outcomes for Indigenous households: evidence for local solutions, was held in Dubbo (NSW) on 5 December 2012. Subsequent meetings have been held in Shepparton (Vic) on 5 March 2013, Cairns (Qld) on 1 May 2013, Alice Springs (NT) on 26 June 2013, Darwin (NT) on 27 August 2013, Adelaide (SA) on 16 December 2013 and the Pilbara on 14 and 15 May 2014.
