What is homelessness? Who counts as homeless? Whose responsibility is homelessness? In Homelessness in Australia, leading experts offer timely insights into the history, cases and extent of homelessness in this country - and the future policy directions most likely to have a positive impact. Chapters cover issues such as gender, Indigenous homelessness, family violence, young people, older people, the effects of trauma and reforming the service system.
