Women's Word on the Street

Research on the impact of rough sleeping in Australia as well as elsewhere predominantly focuses on the experiences of men. While men represent the majority of the rough sleeping population the lack of focus on women sleeping rough leaves a significant gap in our knowledge of the experiences of rough sleeping women in Australia.

Adelaide Zero Project Impact Report

The Adelaide Zero Project has brought together a coalition of over 40 homelessness, housing, health, government, university, corporate and community Partners, with the goal of achieving Functional Zero homelessness for people sleeping rough in Adelaide’s inner-city. A truly collective approach has been revolutionary—Partners have united with shared goals, shared measurement and shared outputs to achieve better outcomes for people sleeping rough.

Between May 2018 and December 2020, the Adelaide Zero Project housed an average of 18 people every month. Throughout this time, services worked together to better coordinate housing and support, undertake in-depth research and establish some of the most comprehensive data on rough sleeping in Adelaide and of any community in Australia. By building on this, the Adelaide Zero Project continues to inform and contribute to the reform of the state-wide homelessness system.

This report tells the story of the extraordinary collective efforts of the Adelaide Zero Project and how this has positively impacted the lives of over 500 people—whose names are now known and who, because of the Project, have been housed.

Advance to Zero: Campaign Briefing

AAEH is seeking to implement an Advance to Zero campaign - a national movement of communities working together to permanently house and support Australia’s most vulnerable people starting with rough sleeping – including individuals, families, and children living in cars, squats, motels and cycling through short-term accommodation options.

The campaign supports community-based efforts to build public support for ending homelessness and political support for renewed Commonwealth and State investment in housing, support services and healthcare for the most vulnerable.

The campaign is inspired by 100,000 Homes campaign in the United States and the 20,000 Homes campaign in Canada and has been adapted to work in the Australian Context.
