Since 2010, 2,735 women have been interviewed using the VI-SPDAT triage tool, as part of registry weeks conducted across Australia. Most of the people interviewed in registry weeks are rough sleepers.

Professor Paul Flatau from the Centre for Social Impact, UWA will present findings from his analysis of de-identified data from registry weeks undertaken in Australia. His report ‘The State of Homelessness in Australia’s Cities’ was recently released. At this special sector forum Professor Flatau will speak to his report and include a special analysis of the data about women.

We know that women often experience homelessness in different ways to men. This unique and important analysis will provide practitioners and workers in the homelessness and housing sectors with a valuable insight into the needs and characteristics of women experiencing homelessness, particularly those who have experienced rough sleeping, around Australia.
