Evaluation of Darwin and Alice Springs Visitor Parks

Project: Research

Project Details


The Department of Territory Families, Housing and Communities (the Department) has committed to conducting an evidence based evaluation of Apmere Mwerre and YiSSA to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the visitor park service model in meeting the needs of visitors from remote or regional areas of the Northern Territory to both services and to inform potential expansion into other regional centers. This will also include how the visitor parks play a role in helping to prevent situational homelessness, even though these parks are not specifically homelessness services. This will involve an assessment of the current demand, effectiveness of the service model(s), and assessment of projected future demand.

The findings of this evaluation will assist future planning and development of visitor parks models in Katherine and Tennant Creek and will also be used to reset the current service models for visitor parks in current operation to ensure suitability for current and future use.

The department has contracted Centred Solutions (Alice Springs)who have sub-contracted Andrew Taylor for demographic analysis associated with the evaluative work.
