Research and Policy
The Deck aims to centralise information and research to support housing and homelessness services, academics, and advocates.
These sources offer contemporary evidence and thinking from national and international sources; including academic institutions, government departments, peak bodies, industry groups, and welfare organisations.
These are invaluable for services seeking to pursue evidence-based policy, setting strategic direction, and seeking to understand their operational environments.

Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre: A Liveability Framework for Social and Affordable Higher Density Housing. Final Industry Report.
Liveability and accessibility in higher density urban housing and precincts are critical to maximise investment and minimise future risks to our community.
This research was guided by a need to shift from a cost-based focus to better understanding the benefits and long-term value derived from liveable and accessible housing precincts. It aims to build a better understanding also of government, industry and not-for-profit roles in shaping industry structure and driving new urban forms, and improving the adoption of liveable and accessible design outcomes.
The research has developed a Liveability Framework for Medium to High-density Social and Affordable Housing. The intent is for the framework to be used by our SBEnrc partners, and the social and affordable housing sector.
