Registry week 2016 report

By Ruah Community Services

Abstract

This report describes the outcomes of the Registry Week event which took place over a two week period, commencing 9 February 2016. The process of surveying homeless people was coordinated by Ruah Community Services as the Lead Agency, in partnership with government and community services agencies. The methodology used in Registry Week was developed by Common Ground in the United States. It makes use of trained volunteers working in teams to conduct early morning surveys of people who are sleeping rough; using a specific survey tool. In communities across the USA and in other states within Australia, the methodology has introduced a targeted approach to move the most vulnerable homeless people into long-term housing. Registry Week is critical to identifying and prioritising the delivery of support services to homeless people according to their level of vulnerability. It provides an evidence-based process to prioritise and match housing and support to individual and family need
