Journeys Home is an important national survey about the living and housing challenges that people may be facing.
It is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS), previously the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA), and run by the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at the University of Melbourne.
The study allows for analysis of the diverse social, economic and personal factors that are related to housing stability. Journeys Home helps policy makers, academics and service providers to understand the needs and experiences of Australians in the field of housing and will help all levels of government to provide better services to people who have living and housing challenges.
We have completed fieldwork for all six waves of the Journeys Home study. We thank participants for their involvement in this important survey.
