Evaluating the Aspire Social Impact Bond
Homelessness remains a persistent social problem and sustainable responses that keep people housed have been elusive.
The Aspire Social Impact Bond in Adelaide responds to this problem in a new way, delivering flexible and intensive wraparound supports over a three-year period to help people secure housing and maintain their tenancies, while addressing other issues in their lives.
CSI Flinders and CSI UWA were funded by the SA Department of Treasury and Finance to conduct an evaluation of the Aspire Social Impact Bond and case management approach.
