The NSW Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (DADHC) commissioned the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) to evaluate the Active Linking Initiative (ALI). The ALI began in 2000 as one part of the NSW Boarding House Reform Program. ALI aims to link people who live in Licensed Residential Centres (LRC, commonly known as licensed boarding houses) into the community in ways which are meaningful and sustainable. ALI support is a contracted service funded by DADHC and provided by nongovernment organisations (NGO). It aims to facilitate community based activities based on a person's goals, building individual skills to enhance their independence and integration within the community.
