Service Needs of Residents in Private Residential Services

Karen R Fisher, Jacqueline Tudball, Gerry Redmond, Sally Robinson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The research examined the nature and extent of need for government and non-government support services among residents of private residential services in Queensland. A profile of people living in private residential services across regions in the state was developed to determine the scope and frequency of service support access, gaps in services and supports and to identify what services needed to be improved or established. The research determined which services were being accessed and how often; which services were needed but not accessed; the barriers to service access; and what services were required but not provided. The research provided the policy basis to improve support and remedy the poor access to mainstream services for people living in private residential services compared to other members of the public.
