The evaluation of the Our Families program, provided through a collaborative partnership between AnglicareSA and UnitingCare Wesley Port Adelaide, for the Communities for Children initiative (CfC), is presented within this report. UnitingCare Wesley Port Adelaide is the Facilitating Partner of CfC and, as such, acts as a broker in engaging the community in the delivery of children’s and parent’s programs aimed at enhancing community outcomes (Muir, Katz et al. 2010). The CfC initiative aimed to improve the coordination of services for children 0-12 years and their families in order to minimise the impact of area-based disadvantage (Muir, Katz et al. 2010). Further, the initiative aimed to build community capacity to provide appropriate, targeted and enhanced services delivery and improve the community context for children (Muir, Katz et al. 2010). The whole community approach to improving child development incorporated the needs of the community (Muir, Katz et al. 2010). This report presents the findings from the evaluation of the UnitingCare Wesley Port Adelaide and AnglicareSA ‘Our Family’ program.
