Families and Children Expert Panel Project

Support for Families and Children service providers

The Families and Children (FaC) Expert Panel Project helps service providers to plan, implement and evaluate programs for families and children using evidence-based approaches. Although we mainly work with service providers funded under the Department of Social Services’ (DSS) FaC Activity, our resources are available to everyone.

Program planning and evaluation guide

The aim of this guide is to help community sector organisations plan, deliver and evaluate evidence-informed programs. Its practical advice and resources are divided into five steps:

Program planning and evaluation guide steps. 1 Identify and prioritise issues; 2 Analyse issues; 3 Plan program; 4 Implement program; 5 Evaluate program

New resources

These two videos are part of a suite of resources that aim to support organisations in the implementation of their programs. These resources were developed in partnership with Centre for Evidence and Implementation as part of the suite of planning and evaluation resources published by the Expert Panel project.
