The purpose of this paper is to conceptualise the drivers of particular housing experiences, to explain why some people have positive housing outcomes while others do not. The attached Determinants of Housing Outcomes (Figure 2) conceptual framework has been developed to facilitate this understanding. It articulates the complex, multi level factors that influence housing (in)stability. The framework describes the policy touch points or levers that typically lead to housing stress, housing instability, and/or homelessness. These things occur at the societal (in Australia this includes Federal, State/Territory, and Local Governments), community and individual level. The framework is intended to inform primary prevention strategies to address housing instability and homelessness, including integrated multi-sectoral policy responses
