The Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) Client data collection forms part of the SAAP National Data Collection. The National Data Collection (NDC) aims to provide good information about the SAAP to agencies and program administrators to assist them in their work so that services for homeless people can be improved. In addition, the collection aims to provide good information about SAAP to peaks, community groups, and interested researchers to assist in debates about homelessness.
The SAAP NDC has three components; the client collection, the demand collection and the administrative collection. The client collection is intended to collect information on all clients receiving ongoing or substantial support under SAAP. Data collection includes basic socio-demographic information and the services required by and provided to each client. Details about accompanying children are also obtained. Additionally, information is collected about the client circumstances before and after receiving SAAP support.
The SAAP NMDS includes information about all clients receiving SAAP support lasting more than 1 hour. The information is collected throughout the year. The SAAP NMDS also identifies and describes the agencies funded under SAAP.
Collection and usage attributes
The SAAP NMDS is compiled by collating information provided by agencies across Australia and by State and Territory community service departments, and is stored in the SAAP National Data Collection Agency database.
