Impact Report 2022—2023

Impact Measure 3 – Analysis

Increase in clients who have a positive transition into secure housing

We know that housing first works. When people have housing combined with appropriate support, we can limit additional trauma, and they have the best chance to recover, rebuild and break the intergenerational cycle of homelessness.   

10 percentage points

Increase in positive transitions out of our short-medium term supported housing.


Clients had a positive transition from Launch Housing short to medium term supported housing into safe and sustainable housing (45%).

Our work contributes to the SDGs

Sustainable Development Goal 1 - No Poverty
Sustainable Development Goal 2 - Zero Hunger
Sustainable Development Goal 5 - Gender Equality
Sustainable Development Goal 10 - Reduced Inequalities
Sustainable Development Goal 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2021-2022 data, 6,100 clients, or 27% people seeking support from homelessness services, had a positive transition into secure housing.

For this impact measure we define a positive transition as clients moving out of temporary Launch Housing properties including crisis accommodation, head leased properties and transitional housing into a private rental, public or community housing. Our positive transition rate into secure housing (45%) is higher than the Victorian state average.

Increase in clients who have a positive transition into secure housing.

There has been a 10 percentage point increase in positive exits over the last three years. This strong outcome is a combination of several factors, including better data capture, an increase in H2H clients moving into their long-term homes, additional properties becoming available from the Victorian government’s Big Build, Homes Victoria prioritising clients who were previously in head-leased properties, and transitional housing clients settling at Viv’s Place.

We expected positive housing exits from our Homelessness to a Home program (see also Impact Measure 2), as many clients received public housing offers and moved out of their head leased properties. Finding long-term housing is a strong outcome for our clients as it allows them to build their lives in secure surroundings.

Looking forward

Over the next year, we will review what is included in this impact measure to better reflect Launch Housing’s role as a growing provider of housing.
