Crisis accommodation in crisis

Each year more than 160,000 people experiencing or at risk of homelessness seek crisis accommodation from SHS. Not all can be accommodated, and many are turned away. For those who do access crisis accommodation, experiences vary significantly. New research, ‘Crisis accommodation in Australia: now and for the future’, undertaken for AHURI by researchers from Swinburne University, Launch Housing, University of South Australia and  Flinders University, explores the different crisis accommodation models operating in Australia to find out what works and what doesn’t. It highlights a range of gaps in the availability and quality of crisis accommodation that people receive, as well as the urgent need to improve exit options to longer term accommodation. It also steps out what’s needed to fix crisis accommodation.
