A profile of the homeless population in Adelaide

This report provides a socio-demographic profile of the homeless population in Adelaide and South Australia. It summarises available data in order to develop a  picture of their health status as well as outstanding health and service needs, and outlines gaps in knowledge that could be served by future research. This research was funded in 2020 by a Flinders University Innovation Partnership Seed Grant to partner with BaptistCare SA on the project: ‘Developing an evaluation research plan for a new South Australian comprehensive primary health care Health and Wellbeing Centre.’
