MCM commissioned a series of research projects on the Melbourne Apartments Project (MAP) – a housing model devised by the Barnett Foundation to assist people living in social housing to move into home ownership. This report is the third and final report that surveys MAP participants 18-months after occupation to assess if participants are still satisfied with their housing and are able to manage financially. MAP participants expressed high feelings of safety and satisfaction, as compared with previous housing in public housing, and a high level of financial resilience was evident in most households. The findings demonstrate that the model which uses shared equity structures can benefit a portion of existing social housing residents, and should inform future policy directions.

The research explores the use of animal assisted interventions (AAI’s) to support young people at Frontyard Youth Services. Animal assisted interventions (AAI’s) are an emerging therapeutic practice that use animals to support people with emotional distress, social relationships and coping skills. Frontyard trialled the use of therapy dogs to reduce the stress and anxiety experienced by young people situated in the waiting area, provide an opportunity for positive social interaction among young people, and increase young people’s engagement in integrated services based at Frontyard.
