Safe, secure housing is fundamental to people’s health and wellbeing. Both people experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness are supported by specialist homelessness services (SHS). In 2018–19, SHS agencies provided support to over 290,300 clients who each had a variety of different needs and reasons for seeking support. Use the following interactive to explore the typical client profile based on age, sex and state/territory where the client received support.

The following interactive display highlights the housing outcomes for SHS clients who finished their support by the end of June 2019. Client housing situations are based on a client’s residence, tenure and conditions of occupancy at the beginning of their first support period within the reporting period, which can be compared to their housing situation at the end of the last support period. Click on an icon in the first row to highlight the housing pathways of SHS clients in 2018–19.
