The Disability Housing Outcomes Framework Tool
The Disability Housing Outcomes Framework Tool is now available for use in your organisation.
Following a highly successful pilot with seven SIL and SDA providers across Australia, the Disability Housing Outcomes Framework Tool is now rolling out across the sector. Organisations working in disability housing can now use the tool to regularly survey their tenants or customers, and measure their impact.
The tool combines one of Australia’s only highly accessible survey interfaces with easy-to-use reporting and data analytics. It helps your organisation to measure its impact against the six DHOF outcomes: Daily Living, Health, Relationships and Community, Rights and Voice, Independence, and Stability and Safety. The tool combines practice improvement with measurement of long-term outcomes for providers. Organisations can also compare themselves to industry benchmarks, and build staff capability through membership of the Community of Practice.
Expressions of interest are open now, with training and onboarding starting in June 2022.
