Urban planning experts at the University of Melbourne have produced an action plan to tackle Victoria’s housing affordability crisis.

According to a longitudinal study following more than 1,000 homeless Australians and those at risk of homelessness, 42 percent of people released from prison, juvenile detention or remand in the past 6 months were found to be homeless.

The Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at the University of Melbourne will investigate Australians’ vulnerability to homelessness under a $5 million project announced by the Federal Government.

A major report investigating Victorian children’s perspective on the experience of homelessness, recommends no moves and no evictions to reduce the problem of childhood homelessness.
