Evaluation of the Camperdown Common Ground Project

The Camperdown Common Ground Project aims to provide permanent, affordable accommodation and support services to 52 chronically homeless people. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the Project’s effectiveness in facilitating sustainable housing for this target group. The evaluation involved gathering, collating and analysing data to understand its impact on residents; structure and processes of service delivery; and the costs and benefits of the Project. The evaluation aimed to inform future planning of the Project and contribute to the evidence of what works to house chronically homeless people in Australia.
