Use evaluation to ignite your practice

Learn new skills and share ideas

You have done an evaluation - now what? Evaluation findings can be used to strengthen programs and services, highlight what works, and enhance outcomes for children and families. 

Join us for a full-day event of networking, sharing skills and ideas and hearing about promising practice in evaluation in the Families and Children sector. The Families and Children Forum will provide an opportunity to build skills so you can get the most out of your evaluation.

The event is free for service providers funded by the Department of Social Services under the Families and Children (FaC) Activity. 

This event will provide opportunities to learn from each other and hear about innovative and effective work being undertaken by other FaC Activity service providers. 

There will be opportunities to showcase promising practice, network with your sector colleagues, and attend workshops and presentations on how to effectively use and respond to evaluation findings. 

This is a space where you can share knowledge and support, and build knowledge and skills around making evaluation work for you. 

Make this your networking and learning event for the year! Meet other FaC providers and showcase and share your knowledge and experience.
