The Adelaide Zero Project is a collaborative approach to end street homelessness in the CBD, based on a methodology that has been successfully used to end homelessness in several Northern American communities. One of the critical components to the methodology is the ability to track everyone currently experiencing homelessness by name, to determine how they enter and exit homelessness and their housing and support needs. Dr Tually has made a significant contribution to the project, working through data coverage, quality and validation issues locally as well as joining forces with a small cohort from Adelaide and North America to develop an Australian version of the data quality scorecard now being used by end homelessness campaigns nationally. The certification assesses factors such as the coverage and coordination of outreach services; policies and procedures that govern the collection and input of data; and how people can be tracked within the homelessness services system towards a permanent housing outcome.

The Adelaide Zero project aims to end street homelessness in the inner city. Connections Week was coordinated by the Don Dunstan Foundation in partnership with the Hutt Street Centre and involved over 20 project partners. Based on the Registry Week methodology , Connections Week provides a by-name list of people sleeping rough and their support needs.
This could be for many reasons including hospitalisation, moving out of Adelaide or the individual has obtained housing independently. Further work is being done to determine the number and how to better capture the people on the inactive list who have obtained housing independently of the partners in the Adelaide Zero Project. As of 30 April , data is being reported at the end of the calendar month, rather than on the 18th of each month. This graph shows the number of people known to be sleeping rough in the inner city each month. This data is from the By-Name List, which was established 18 May Connections Week and is used to track progress on the Dashboard above launched August Fewer people were approached during the Street Count in September people than in May people.
