reduced costs to the justice system


For Government, the results further evidence prevention is better than cure. The state makes sizeable savings in relation to: • Reduced costs in housing services (short term and crisis accommodation) • Reduced costs to the health system • Reduced costs to the justice system [...] The criminal justice system, health system and specialist homeless services have benefited through Kids Under Cover’s early intervention, resulting in sizable savings. The homeless service system, providing emergency or short-term accommodation, accrues the majority of these savings, relieving pressure that would otherwise have cost $4 million over the last six years.

Kids Under Cover is a not for profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness through early intervention and prevention. The Kids Under Cover model is delivered via the Studio and Scholarship Programs. We work in partnership with approximately 60 Community Service Organisations (CSOs), along with government departments and young people. Our Studio Program aims to respond to the issues associated with inadequate, or a lack of access to, stable and affordable housing, especially during important developmental years.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

An SROI analysis assesses the ‘impact’ of activities, rather than simply measuring the delivery of activities such as ‘number of studios built’ or ‘number of scholarships provided’. This involves identifying and measuring social outcomes and, where appropriate, applying financial proxies to represent those outcomes. [...] Actively engaging with stakeholders is a key element of the SROI methodology. A project steering committee consisting of EY and Kids Under Cover was established to help facilitate the SROI, monitor progress and review the results. [...] SROI is built on primary data collected directly from stakeholders to indicate the occurrence of an outcome for affected parties. To evidence the incidence and magnitude of outcomes identified through the stakeholder engagement phase, a range of data collection approaches were used, including phone interviews and secondary research. [...] Three key components: 1. Baseline data represented the average position on a fivepoint scale (never, sometimes, often, most of the time, always) before the Kids Under Cover intervention; 2. Follow-up data represented the average position on the scale at the time of the interview; Attribution data was captured to represent the contribution of the Kids Under Cover intervention to the change. The carers and young people were asked how much of the change was attributed to the Kids Under Cover programs on a 4 point-scale (none, some, a lot, all).
