Project Status: Archive
People Involved: BJ Newton, Christiane Purcal, kylie valentine, Rosemary Kayess
Funding Agency: Northcott

Northcott Disability Services is working with SPRC to develop evaluation capacity for the Aboriginal disability child and family therapy research project in Mt Druitt and Moree. The project uses mixed methods that are responsive to the preferences of the local communities, including project reporting data (family characteristics, service use, outcomes, cost); and qualitative material from interviews, groups, observation or narratives. SPRC is conducting the evaluation with Northcott to provide research training through shadowing with researchers.
