Developmental evaluation of the Able and Deadly Project

In 2018-2019, Baptist Care SA appointed HOI to undertake a developmental evaluation of Able and Deadly: Innovative best practice in providing NDIS Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Support to ‘Hard to Reach.’ The target group was defined as people with disability that are homeless and/or living with a mental illness, cognitive or psychosocial disability whom were considered ‘hard to reach’ or who currently had poor access to NDIS services. The target group included Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, along with their kinship networks and those working with this demographic.

Key evaluation activities included: consultations with stakeholders (co-creators) to guide the evaluation process and tools used; quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis; development and presentation of a conference abstract, presentation and journal article to disseminate project findings. A final report was delivered to Baptist Care SA outlining key findings and recommendations.
