The WAAEH, via Shelter WA, received funding from Lotterywest to develop The Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness Outcomes Measurement and Evaluation Framework: Ending Homelessness in Western Australia - A Complexity Science Approach to Measurement, Evaluation and Accountability (the Framework) to measure and monitor progress towards ending homelessness. The Centre for Social Impact at The University of Western Australia (CSI UWA) (a founding member of the WAAEH) undertook the task of developing the Framework.
The WAAEH Outcomes Measurement Framework is represented in our conceptual models presented below in Figures 1 to 3. These conceptual models are pictures of the various domains, outcomes, indicators, parts and measurement aspects of the Framework. This accompanying document is the Data Dictionary, in which each individual indicator is broken down into measures and targets, and the rationale and methodologies for inclusion of outcomes and indicators in the measurement and evaluation of the Framework is explained. The Data Dictionary provides the basis of full operationalisation of the Framework. The second accompanying document to the Framework is an initial prototype of The Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness Outcomes Measurement and Evaluation Framework: Dashboard (the Dashboard).
