The Tasmanian Government is committed to providing quality, sustainable services for Tasmanians on low incomes and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The Department of Health and Human Services is undertaking massive reform to continue to ensure we meet the changing needs of our clients and operating as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Over the last 18 months, we have been progressively reforming Housing Tasmania’s internal structures and processes and the provision of public housing, including encouraging the growth of community housing providers.
The Support and Accommodation Assistance Review (SAAR) is a key component of the transformation of housing and homelessness services in Tasmania. Through the SAAR we will refocus support and accommodation services on breaking the cycle through finding permanent solutions to homelessness.
The purpose of the SAAR is to assess and redesign or further improve aspects of the support and accommodation assistance service systems so that it is:
- easier for people to access and use
- more responsive to a broader range of people’s needs
- better able to match support and accommodation assistance to people’s needs
- aligned to the national and state reform objectives
- more efficient in their operations.
Housing Tasmania commissioned KPMG to deliver the SAAR. The aims of the project are detailed further in the attached KPMG Project Information Sheet.
