Research Data

In 2019, ARVL provided data and statistics for research with the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) regarding homelessness amongst Australian veterans. Read the report here.

ARVL also partners with research organisations like MESHA, Flinder University, Phoenix Australia and various other organisations, to provide further research and data and to draw upon the findings to continually improve our services for veterans experiencing homelessness.

We have worked very closely with Dr Duncan Wallace (a consultant psychiatrist, and a Commodore in the Royal Australian Navy) who published an article in the national journal, Australasian Psychiatry, titled “Veteran Homelessness in Australia: What do we know? What has been done? What do we need to do?”. In this article Dr Wallace highlights the critical vulnerabilities our homeless veterans face, as well as the important work thatARVL is doing.
