South Australian Housing Authority: Homelessness Services Mapping project - Summary Document

Dominic Stefanson, Ian Goodwin-Smith

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The South Australian Housing Authority (SAHA) engaged The Australian Alliance for Social Enterprise in late 2019 to undertake a mapping exercise of specialist homelessness services funded through the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement (NHHA).This report provides a "snapshot in time" of the system for the2018-19 financial year. The services considered include $67.5million of services provided under the NHHA by mainly by non-government agencies delivered through 86 contracts and a further 5 service providers funded through other sources. This mapping exercise involves two components. The first is a quantitative, data-based analysis, undertaken in conjunction with SAHA, which compares the delivery of services in South Australia to other jurisdictions and also compares service delivery across different regions and client cohorts within South Australia. The second is a qualitative assessment which included interviews with SAHA staff and sector consultation sessions undertaken with the Homelessness Strategic Group and the other homelessness sector groups. The report identifies issues and highlights areas which would benefit from more in-depth critical analysis.
