Social housing legal responses to crime and anti-social behaviour: impacts on vulnerable families New AHURI research
Social housing in Australia is targeted to households with low incomes and complex support needs. In recent times, social housing policy has sought to give social landlords (i.e. government housing authorities, community and Indigenous housing providers) a larger role in relation to crime and noncriminal anti-social behaviour. This research reviewed social housing tenancies law and policies in five jurisdictions, and national policy principles and frameworks relating to four types of vulnerable people: women affected by domestic violence; children; Indigenous persons; and people affected by alcohol and other drugs.
