This project was completed with the support of the BNHCRC Quick Response Fund.
Historically, research on the social, economic and health impacts of extreme weather and natural disaster has focused on the housed population. However, people experiencing homelessness are uniquely and severely impacted by severe weather. Prior to this study there was no existing Australian research documenting homeless people's preparedness, response to and immediate recovery from events like the 2016 East Coast storms and subsequent flooding.
