The Specialist Homelessness Services accommodation type and start/end date cluster defines information on the accommodation provided to a client during a collection month and the commencement and cessation dates of supported accommodation.

The cluster collects:

  • the type of accommodation (e.g. short term/emergency, medium term/transitional, or long term) the client was provided
  • the date the accommodation period commenced (record the date in the format DDMMYYYY)
  • the date the accommodation period ceased (record the date in the format DDMMYYYY).

Guide for use:Help on this term

Record all the accommodation provided to a client during the reporting period (calendar month).
Only one type of accommodation should be recorded per client for each night. If a client is marked down as staying in two different types of accommodation for the same date, it will be recorded as an error.
If a client receives accommodation for the whole collection month, the first day of the month should be recorded as the start date, and the last valid calendar day for that month should be recorded as the end date.
A separate period of accommodation should be recorded if the accommodation type changes during the reporting period — for example, if the client moves from short-term accommodation to long-term accommodation, then two accommodation periods are recorded.
