(2) Unmet need is recorded on the basis of what service is required rather than what type of funding program (Individual Support Program for example) is requested.
(3) The breakdown of the data for known unmet needs indicates:
• 64% accommodation support services;
• 10% respite services;
• 25% community access services; and
• 1% community support services.
Disability ACT is aware however, that the level of known unmet need in these categories is not an accurate reflection of what individuals and families choose to access. Needs and expectations are regularly re-negotiated with Disability ACT and other service providers in part due to changing circumstance, greater awareness of programs and a desire for security.
