  1. The construction of social housing pathways across Australia

    Author(s): Abigail Powell; Ariella Meltzer; Chris Martin; Wendy Stone; Edgar Liu; Kathleen Flanagan; Kristy Muir; Selina Tually

    Description: This report examines the role of policy in shaping social housing pathways (i.e. the changing experience of housing by tenants and their households over time and space) through a review of current social housing operational policies. It considers application processes, eligibility criteria, rent, use of premises, tenant-initiated transfers, portfolio management and tenancy management by landlords.

  2. Social housing as infrastructure: rationale, prioritisation and investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Todd Denham; Jago Dodson; Kathleen Flanagan; Keith Jacobs; Chris Martin; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy

    Description: Considering social housing as infrastructure may improve investment in the sector, as well as increase transparency and efficiency in project appraisal and funding prioritisation. It explored different methods of calculating the benefits of social housing relative to cost, including the savings that might accrue in other areas of government expenditure. The research also modelled ways to best finance and fund social housing, revealing that a capital investment strategy supplemented by efficient financing is substantially more cost-effective than a commercially financed model reliant on an operating subsidy.

  3. Social housing legal responses to crime and anti-social behaviour: impacts on vulnerable families

    Author(s): Chris Martin; Daphne Habibis; Lucinda Burns; Hal Pawson

    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.

    Description: This study examined the changing geography of homelessness.
