New report – Housing outcomes after family and domestic violence

A new AHURI report released today examines how housing and other forms of support for vulnerable families can best be integrated to improve safety and wellbeing. The research, Housing outcomes after family and domestic violence, undertaken for AHURI by researchers from the University of Tasmania and University of New South Wales, found that while emergency support services for those experiencing domestic and family violence are effective and timely, the shortage of affordable, long-term housing leaves many women and children at risk of homelessness or considering a return to a violent home.
