Description: This research reviewed social housing tenancies law and policies in five jurisdictions, and national policy principles and frameworks relating to four types of vulnerable people: women affected by domestic violence; children; Indigenous persons; and people affected by alcohol and other drugs. Social housing policy in Australia targets assistance to households with low incomes and complex support needs and seeks to give social landlords a role in relation to crime and noncriminal anti-social behaviour.
