- Indigenous homelessness: a discussion paper on Indigenous homelessness in Victoria
- Berry, Mike; MacKenzie, David; Briskman, Linda; Ngwenya, Thami
- The Aboriginal Housing Board of Victoria (AHBV) considers that the specific issues of homelessness and inadequate housing of Indigenous people in Victoria have not received sufficient attention by government. On behalf of the Board, a project team from RMIT University was commissioned to undertake a study designed to provide a research base for the Board to advocate for the needs of Indigenous Victorians who experience homelessness. The purpose of this discussion paper is to stimulate discussion and thinking by raising some of the issues and questions that inform the meaning of homelessness for Indigenous people in Victoria and begin to sketch out the profile of issues that need to be addressed. Issues discussed include: the Indigenous community of Victoria; Indigenous homelessness from an historical perspective; homelessness as a social problem; homelessness as defined in the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP); and primary, secondary and tertiary categories of homelessness.
