For the media

We can help you tell your housing story

Our mission is to improve the housing and urban environments of all Australians - and media has a role in helping us achieve this goal.

With findings from hundreds of AHURI funded research projects at our finger tips - plus preliminary findings from research in progress - we can provide an evidence-informed voice for your media story.

Our research covers a broad range of housing, homelessness and related urban issues, including research specific to Indigenous Australians. It identifies the key facts and provides an understanding of what those facts mean.

All our research reports are free to use and easily searchable online. Sign up to receive AHURI News or contact us to discuss how we can help you with your housing story.
