Australian homeless jobseekers aged 18-35 : benchmark report for YP4

Grace, Marty, Wilson, Nicole and Batterham, Deb (2005) Australian homeless jobseekers aged 18-35 : benchmark report for YP4. Project Report. Victoria University, Melbourne, Victoria.


YP4 is a trial of joined up services for homeless jobseekers. This is the first report of the YP4 outcome evaluation team. It presents a socio-demographic profile of homeless jobseekers aged 18-35 years, as a benchmark for the group recruited for the YP4 trial. In preparing this profile, we experienced considerable difficulty in obtaining data regarding the population from which the YP4 participants have been drawn. Planning for joined up services in the future will require much better access to a range of data in relation to target populations. This report sheds light on the unexpected slow recruitment into the trial. In addition, it presents limited outcome benchmarks for interventions with the target group. Like the demographic data, this information is not readily available. We will continue to pursue additional outcome benchmarks for our next report.
