LGBT homelessness project report launch

The final report was the culmination of 18 months’ research at the University of Melbourne and Swinburne University of Technology. It was officially launched with 80 people present at Allens law firm, who kindly hosted the event.

This study has produced important new evidence about the pathways to homelessness that are unique to LGBTQ Australians.

The report is already having an impact in the homelessness services sector to inform LGBTQ inclusive service provision, and also encouraging policy writers to improve the focus on LGBTQ people as a vulnerable subgroup.

The report and executive summary can be found here.
