Whilst recent research in Victoria has examined the link between gambling and use of welfare services to meet basic needs, there has been no substantive study that specifically explores the extent to which problem gambling directly contributes to housing crisis or homelessness. This study has sought to investigate the association between problem gambling and homelessness, and to better understand the pathways from problem gambling to housing crisis.
