Homelessness in Western Australia: A review of the research and statistical evidence

The release of the Australian Bureau of Statistics' 2016 Census estimates of homelessness revealed that homelessness in Australia had risen 4.6% relative to the 2011 Census.

Despite national reforms and significant policy and practice efforts, homelessness continue to persist and, indeed, grow. This calls for a reflection and further research to develop a stronger understanding of the drivers of homelessness and, from a policy perspective, a way forward that engages all groups of societal stakeholders to end homelessness rather than manage it.
