Abstract This study examines ‘assertive outreach’ as a recent and developing, policy-driven approach to ending homelessness for people sleeping rough in Australia. It is concerned with how assertive outreach has been conceptualised and implemented into practice in Australia and the extent to which it is achieving its policy intent. The study is essentially a formative review and aims to elicit the perspectives and experiences of policy-makers, service providers and service users within diverse contextual environments, drawing on three Australian case studies.
