Service type is the support activity which the service type outlet has been funded to provide under the NDA. The NMDS classifies services according to ‘service type'. The ‘service type' classification groups services into seven categories (known as ‘service groups'): accommodation support; community support; community access; respite; employment; advocacy, information and alternative forms of communication; and other support services. Within each of these categories there are subcategories.
A service type outlet is the unit of the funded service provider that delivers a particular DS NMDS service type at, or from, a discrete location. If a funded service provider provides, say, both accommodation support and respite services, it is counted as two service type outlets. Similarly, if a service provider is funded to provide more than one accommodation support service type (for example, group homes and attendant care) then it is providing (and is usually separately funded for) two different service types, that is, there are two service type outlets for the funded service provider.
