Improving housing and service responses to domestic and family violence for Indigenous individuals and families

Improving housing and service responses to domestic and family violence for Indigenous individuals and families

3 September 2019

This report investigates the housing needs of Indigenous women and children facing domestic and family violence.

This report has been published by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI).

It investigates the housing needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children facing domestic and family violence and considers how policy responses could be improved.

It highlights how women and children often become trapped in a revolving door between crisis services, homelessness, and returning to an unsafe home. However, integrated and culturally appropriate interventions hold promise of reducing rates of violence and injury as well as children's removal into out-of-home care.

Access the report via the AHURI website.
