Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Data from First Point and OneLink are not directly comparable:

First Point combined all requests made by a client into one single request which was then prioritised (therefore one request equated to one client).

OneLink however records and prioritises each request separately. In this reporting, the number of requests will always be higher than the number of clients, as clients often have multiple requests.

OneLink also reports separately for accommodation requests and non-accommodation requests.

OneLink provides not only homelessness services but also child, youth and family services and access to a range of mainstream services.

Both services report on ‘new requests for assistance’.
