Holes in the Safety Net Indicator

Team Name: 
Safety Net

Holes in the safety net indicator is a national assessment of the concentration of charitable organisations that work with people at risk of homelessness. It shows locations where there are fewer homeless charities and comparatively larger homeless populations, to encourage growth of charitable organisations in those areas most in need.


Datasets Used: 
Homelessness is a problem in melbourne but it is also a problem across australia…. We have worked on this issue from two perspectives. First is the perspective of the homeless person looking for information. We have created an app that should be put on information kiosks at many of the helping out services in melbourne and libraries. This combines and cleans helping out, community food, and public toilets Helping Out City of Melbourne Community food Public toilets ACNC charities with some useful categories. http://data.gov.au/dataset/acnc-2013ais Population of homeless http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/DetailsPage/2049.02011?OpenDocument Population of usual residents http://stat.abs.gov.au/ Australian Geographic Standard SA3 geography http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/censushome.nsf/home/datapacks
