MARKET RESEARCH BRIEF
Please read the market research brief below. It is provided by your client called Hanover.
Note: Hanover was a not-for-profit organization based in Melbourne, and the brief, questionnaire, and SPSS datafile included here were used in a past project conducted for Hanover. However, this organization and project are no longer active.
This case study has been set purely for assessment purposes. You do not need to undertake any further research on the company background.
Hanover is a community agency that provides a range of services to people experiencing homelessness. Hanover is independent and has no structural links with churches, institutions or governments and has been providing support to those in need for almost 50 years.
Our services include the provision of:
Our mission is to empower people who are homeless or at risk of becoming so, to enable them to take greater control of their lives. Our mission is also to stimulate and encourage change in Australian society to benefit people experiencing homelessness. Our statement of values: Hanover values integrity in all its relationships, intelligence in its processes, the intrinsic worth of each individual and development and nurturing of community participation.
Hanover also provides a range of services and programs that focus on the prevention of homelessness. We provide specialist support services for young people, children, families and couples and singles. We also provide support for people with alcohol and substance addictions. We also play an important advocacy role with government.
Notably, Hanover, in partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence, opened the first Youth Foyer in Victoria. The Foyer is an integrated learning and accommodation centre which aims to develop the skills of young people (16-24 years) who can’t live at home by providing and combining affordable accommodation, education and training and employment so they can break the cycle of homelessness and lead independent, rewarding lives.
Past Market Research
We are a sector leader, renowned for our commitment to research – our research not only provides an evidence base to provide solutions to addressing homelessness, it also has an important focus on investigating the causes of homelessness across Australia.
One of Hanover’s flagship studies was undertaken in 2007, in partnership with its corporate sponsors, Maurice Blackburn Cashman and Roberts Research, to ascertain the public’s views about homelessness. This entailed focus groups with the general public about their attitudes and understanding of the causes, dimensions, responsibility and possible solutions of homelessness. The six focus groups were then followed up by a national telephone survey of 1000 respondents – the largest survey ever undertaken in Australia on this particular topic. While the research revealed that the general public tends to focus on the individual attributes or behaviour of people who experience homelessness, it also showed that a majority of people considered that the government was the main agency responsible for solving homelessness.
More recently, Hanover has conducted market research to better understand youth perceptions of homelessness in Victoria. Specifically, this project surveyed Victorians aged 18-25 years old regarding the perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs about homelessness. Further details of this study are provided below under ‘Current Market Research’.

Hanover have sent you a publish of this new survey, which you will see below under ‘Hanover publish Follow-up Survey’.
