The Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) collection obtains information about people, adults and children, who seek assistance from specialist homelessness agencies. Homelessness data for the SHS collection is submitted through a secure Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) online platform called ValidataTM. ValidataTM accepts and processes data from SHS agencies across the country. These agencies collect data through a variety of client management systems, including Specialist Homelessness Information Platform (SHIP) and report data to AIHW monthly via ValidataTM. ValidataTM performs a number of validation checks on submitted data, which ensures high quality reporting for the collection.
