This report explores why it is necessary to design and deliver homelessness services specifically for Indigenous people. The report examines this topic in the context of current trends in homelessness policy, which favour the mainstreaming of services for Indigenous homeless people. It speaks to the concerns of government policy makers in this field, as well as relevant administrators and non-government organisations (NGOs) engaged in designing programs and services for Aboriginal homeless and public place dwelling people. The report was funded by the Australian Government under the 2009-13 National homelessness research agenda.
