Adelaide Zero Project Impact Report

The Adelaide Zero Project has brought together a coalition of over 40 homelessness, housing, health, government, university, corporate and community Partners, with the goal of achieving Functional Zero homelessness for people sleeping rough in Adelaide’s inner-city. A truly collective approach has been revolutionary—Partners have united with shared goals, shared measurement and shared outputs to achieve better outcomes for people sleeping rough.

Between May 2018 and December 2020, the Adelaide Zero Project housed an average of 18 people every month. Throughout this time, services worked together to better coordinate housing and support, undertake in-depth research and establish some of the most comprehensive data on rough sleeping in Adelaide and of any community in Australia. By building on this, the Adelaide Zero Project continues to inform and contribute to the reform of the state-wide homelessness system.

This report tells the story of the extraordinary collective efforts of the Adelaide Zero Project and how this has positively impacted the lives of over 500 people—whose names are now known and who, because of the Project, have been housed.
