Project Brief/Description:
This research produced a monograph that provides a national overview of local strategies being used to address the needs and problems of homeless and itinerant Indigenous Australians, many of whom are living in public places. The analysis focuses primarily on people whose situation places them in the category of experiencing ‘primary homelessness’. This 2002 research project was funded by a grant from the Commonwealth Department of Family and Community Services.
