Bail Accommodation Support Program [BASP]

The Bail Accommodation Support Program (BASP) became operational in the first quarter of 2017.

It provides short term accommodation for alleged offenders on bail who lack accommodation as an alternative to being remanded in custody. Participation in the BASP is voluntary and is determined by the Magistrate.

The BASP is designed to replicate community living and is close to transport links, essential services and court precincts.

Residents are accommodated in one of 30 self-contained accommodation units in a purpose built facility in Port Adelaide. Support is provided to residents to maintain links to family, employment and other services whilst transitioning to long term accommodation.

Residents are expected to meet their court-imposed bail conditions and follow strict house rules.

The BASP is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The BASP is a partnership with AnglicareSA who run and manage the accommodation.
