Our Accolades

The program is supported by three independent external evaluations commissioned by the Federal and NSW State Governments. The reviews were conducted by Charles Sturt University (2000), professional research firm Urbis (2003 & 2008) and research conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (2009). The reports can be reviewed here.  

The program has received numerous awards and national recognition. This includes two "Promising Practice Profiles" from the Australian Institute of Family Studies, two Australian Crime & Violence Prevention Awards, the Herald Youth Award and the Parramatta Regional Award for Business Excellence.
