This is the final report for the AHURI Inquiry into social impact investment for housing and homelessness outcomes. This report provides an analysis of the overall insights from across the Inquiry’s three projects. These insights were gathered from a critical analysis of 158 publications, a workshop with 32 expert diverse stakeholders, in-depth interviews with 70 key stakeholders, an online survey with 72 people across the financial, housing and SII sectors, and 3 case studies. Guided by the Inquiry’s focus and research questions, this report has been written for a reasonably informed audience of current and potential SII actors, but with the aim of making the information accessible to a broader audience than the underlying project reports.
