Posters and handouts about the Street Census will be available for agencies to post in advance.
Volunteers will arrive at your agency at a pre-arranged, designated time and/or may be visible within the general location of your agency. Volunteers will talk one-on-one with individuals who are interested in completing the survey and this will be done in the style of a short interview (about 10 minutes each).
All participants, including those who access your services, will be informed of their right to privacy and confidentiality. Clients will be respected regardless of their decision to participate or decline participation at any point during the survey. Individuals who decide not to interact with interviewers or who are asleep will not be disturbed. No identifying information will be collected from interviewees, therefore the interview participants will remain anonymous.
The services of existing outreach teams or staff at your agency (depending on the agency and advance agreement) will be sought so that if an interviewee requires assistance, the interviewer can connect that person to resources immediately. Interviewees will also be provided with information about the Street Census with contact information so they can ask questions or raise concerns about the project.
