  1. Young Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Amity James; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research investigated the short and longer term housing aspirations and the housing aspirations gap among ‘emerging adults’ aged 18–24 years and ‘early adults’ aged 25–34 years in order to better understand how their aspirations are linked to a ‘broader life project’ across areas such as education, employment and family formation.

  2. Older Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Amity James; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research examined the housing aspirations of older Australians (i.e. aged 55 years and over), including home owners and renters in the private market and in social housing, to provide the evidence-base for policies needed to deliver their required housing and housing assistance.

  3. Audit of South Australia’s current housing assets and mapping of future demand

    Author(s): Chris Leishman; Emma Baker

    Description: This audit of South Australia's current housing assets and mapping of future demand uses 2016 Census data, survey data, and administrative data. Low income rental stress and mortgage stress is estimated; and a quantitative assessment of housing affordability is included.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. The changing geography of homelessness: a spatial analysis from 2001 to 2016

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Deb Batterham; Margaret Reynolds; Gavin Wood

    Description: This study examined the changing geography of homelessness. It outlines the extent to which homelessness has become more spatially concentrated over time; where it has risen and fallen; and the importance that housing affordability, poverty and labour market opportunities play in reshaping its distribution.
