To evaluate the Mt Druitt Family Care Centre a number of variables were measured: clients' anxiety and confidence before and after attendance, feedback on their experiences at the Centre and mothercraft skills and abilities on disengagement. Forty-one new clients whose ages reflected those of the area's child-bearing population participated. Most frequently reported presenting problems were: children not sleeping, concern with play activities and feeding difficulties. After attending the Centre there was a significant increase in the confidence levels and a decrease in anxiety levels of the service users. Most reported satisfaction with the service.
