Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 8 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 2834..


(5) The most recent report available from CALMS includes data up until 30 April 2006. The way in which data was collected during the 2004-05 year means that the period 1 July 2005 - 30 April 2006 cannot be compared with the exact same time period for the preceding year. However, based on the monthly average of consultations performed during the first ten-months of 05-06 it can be estimated that around 15,530 consultations will be performed during the full year. This would mean an increase of around 3,400 consultations in the 05-06 year compared with the 04-05 year.

(6) The Caring for Kids at Home Program was established in August 2004. The new funding received in the 2005-2006 provided additional high needs children/adolescents to be cared for at home.
