Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Bibliography: p. 66-76 Prepared for the Office for Women Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Family & early years Into & out of workSummary: "Domestic and family violence related homelessness is a widespread and growing problem in Australia. However, establishing the true extent of domestic and family violence is difficult. There is no typical woman who becomes homeless because of domestic and family violence. Such violence can and does affect women of all ages, cultural, social and economic backgrounds, and women living in all sorts of relationships. The election of the Rudd Government and its commitment to the development of a ten year plan to address homelessness in Australia provides promise that women and children affected by domestic and family violence, and the threat and reality of homelessness, will be given greater prominence in the public policy arena. > This report investigates the support and accommodation needs of women (and children) affected by domestic and family violence. It finds that there is no one solution to domestic and family violence related homelessness. There is also no easy to roll out solution. This is because there is no one pathway into homelessness for all women affected by domestic and family violence and many women cycle in and out of homelessness and crisis accommodation." -- Office for Women websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
