This report presents the 2021 update to the Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness Outcomes Measurement Framework:
Dashboard (the Dashboard), which was first released in August 2019, and updated in February 2020.
The Dashboard is an evolving, accessible, and visual platform designed to present and report on outcomes relevant to the key targets of the Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (WAAEH).
The Dashboard aims to answer the following question: Are we are on track to end homelessness in Western Australia?
The Dashboard provides trends in key targets and brief comments on these trends.
Our goal is to create a comprehensive evaluation and accountability mechanism that will assess progress in meeting the WAAEH 10-year targets to end homelessness.
This is necessary as rigidity and inflexibility in the methods being used in achieving homelessness will only result in delayed progress towards the goals.
We need to be willing to transparently reflect on past experience and how we are tracking in achieving the Framework measures, including the individual life outcomes of those experiencing or at risk of homelessness (micro-level), the outcomes within and surrounding the organisations engaged in ending homelessness (Meso level), and the broader sectors to which those organisations belong (macro-level).
The Ending Homelessness in Western Australia 2021 Report (the Report) provides further commentary on these trends as well as providing a review of the initiatives, programs, and policies in Western Australia.
The 2021 Report will be released in August 2021.
