Report: Enhancing the coordination of housing supports for individuals leaving institutional settings

Published

The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute have published a report which found that transitions out of institutional settings are associated with significant risks of housing insecurity.

These risks can be greatly reduced by more effective service coordination, especially between separate service systems (for example, housing, mental health, substance use, family services and corrections).

There is currently considerable variation in how housing issues are managed within these settings, and the quality and duration of housing support available to individuals when they leave. 

There is emerging evidence that service coordination roles should be supplemented and supported by greater involvement of ‘peer’, ‘consumer’ and/or ‘service user’ representatives in service coordination. This is demonstrated in several best practice programs around the country.
