Study protocol: Hybrid evaluation of Future Directions for Social Housing in New South Wales

Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW (Future Directions) in New South Wales, Australia was announced in 2016 to address numerous state-based social housing challenges. Along with our partners across various institutes in Australia, CEI published a study protocol for assessing the effectiveness and implementation of Future Directions, including the three social housing programmes.

The consortium is using an effectiveness-implementation hybrid study for this evaluation, with a dual focus on assessing effectiveness and implementation. Our methodology will produce a high-quality evaluation of a large project with hopes to facilitate rapid translational gains, enable real-time adoption of effective implementation strategies, and generate actionable insights for policymakers.

The evaluation protocol has recently been published in the University of Edinburgh’s open access journal Social Science Protocols. Read the study protocol.
