The Stronger Communities for Children Programme Evaluation Summary

The Stronger Communities for Children program (SCfC) aims to give children and young people the best start in life. Using a community-driven, place-based approach, the program gives people in communities a real say in what services they need and how they are delivered. The SCfC program has been operating in the ten sites of Ntaria, Wadeye, Santa Teresa, Galiwin’ku, Ngukurr, Atitjere (encompassing Engawala & Bonya), Gunbalanya, Utopia Homelands, Maningrida and Lajamanu. In 2017 the SCfC program was evaluated. The findings show that the program was meeting it’s overall objective, and is an effective way for Government to support remote communities.
