Categories of Indigenous 'homeless' people and good practice responses to their needs : final report


This research is concerned with the phenomenon of Indigenous homelessness in Australia. The project aimed to examine the definitions and constructs of ‘Indigenous homelessness’ found in the literature and to develop a more useful set of categories based on the complex range of circumstances and needs of ‘the homeless’ and ‘public place dwellers’; to clarify further the relation between categories of Indigenous homelessness and public place dwelling on the one hand, and categories of responses to the needs of such people on the other; and to identify and profile a number of good practice response strategies, which were being used to address the needs of particular categories of homeless or public place dwelling Indigenous people.
