This research project was funded by the Australian Government under the 2009-13 National Homelessness Research Agenda.
The purpose of this research was to provide evidence on non-metropolitan homelessness service system capacity and to identify and develop effective service integration strategies suited to a non-metropolitan setting.
Specific questions addressed by the research included:
- What homelessness service system integration models work in regional areas?
- What are the barriers and service system gaps that need to be addressed to maximise regional homelessness service integration?
- What is the potential for increased cross-sector collaboration in a regional setting?
- What aspects of the findings can be generalised to other non-metropolitan settings?
