Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) commissioned the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) at UNSW to design an evaluation framework and collect data for the accommodation support and funding models under Stronger Together Two (ST2). The evaluation used longitudinal, mixed methods and a participatory research approach. The evaluation includes nine SAEF options grouped in four types: Individual packages, Drop-in support, Group accommodation and Other. This report is about the implementation and use of individual packages: Supported Living Fund (SLF) and Individual Accommodation Support Packages (IASP).
People who received SLF or IASP nominated and worked with an ADHC approved financial intermediary service provider to administer and manage the package. People who used the packages were not tied to any one service provider or living arrangement, rather the funding was portable throughout NSW and remained with the person, administered by a service provider of their choice. The service provider might provide support services or broker services and would charge an administrative fee to manage the package.
