Survey: Evaluation of Our Way, Changing Tracks

The Queensland Government and Family Matters Queensland are continuing to work in partnership with communities and key stakeholders to implement the Our Way strategy and Changing Tracks: An action plan for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families (Changing Tracks 2017-2022).

An evaluation of Our Way, Changing Tracks commissioned by the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs (DCYJMA) is underway and will finish in June 2022. This first phase of evaluation will seek to establish a baseline and explore the changes happening at a system level, focusing on assessing whether legislation, policy and practice is starting to shift to enable the long-term vision of Our Way.

An Evaluation Team, comprising researchers and evaluators from Deloitte Access Economics, the Social Research Centre and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander team members from Murawin, have been contracted to undertake the evaluation. The team invites your organisation to respond to a 10-15 minute survey to share your understanding of the Our Way Strategy and the Changing Tracks Action Plans and the ways in which we all work to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Access the survey.

Please forward this invitation to others in your networks. The survey will be open until close of business on 30 April 2021. If you have any questions regarding the evaluation, please contact Sarah Bodel, Indigenous Strategy and Partnerships, DCYJMA on (07) 3097 7215 or email the evaluation team.
