Social housing pathways are the housing experiences of tenants and their households over time and space. They are not linear and may refer to changes in tenure, household form, experiences and attachment.
In recent times, social housing policy in Australia has largely been driven by a need to manage the social housing waiting list, rather than ensuring positive housing outcomes for tenants and their households. Policies for entry into, movement within and out of social housing are predominantly shaped by eligibility criteria, which increasingly have been prioritising people with complex needs.
This free webinar will present the findings from a new AHURI research project — ‘A pathway to where?’ Inquiry into understanding and reimagining social housing pathways — led by Professor Kristy Muir, UNSW Sydney and CEO of the Centre for Social Impact. Following the research presentation, Professor Muir will participate in a discussion with AHURI’s Executive Director Dr Michael Fotheringham and take questions from the audience.
