The Department has sent out over 1,300 application forms to those who have requested them. The Department does not hold information on the recipients of the application forms.

As of 18 August 2023, the Department has received 110 fully completed applications that have demonstrated that the applicant met the eligibility criteria. The Department does not collect and therefore hold data on all applications made, as some applicants do not meet all the eligibility criteria, and these applications are not stored.
