818. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the minister representing the
Minister for Child Protection:
refer to the explanation during Legislative Assembly Estimates Committee B on
21 September 2021 that an election commitment of $110 000 was allocated to
Stronger Families to deliver the Caring Dads program in the Peel region.

fathers who are alleged to have abused or neglected their children or exposed
them to the abuse of their mothers access this program?
(2) How will the outcomes of this
trial be measured?
(3) Will the minister table the
agreement made by Stronger Families?
DARREN WEST replied:
On behalf of the parliamentary
secretary representing the Minister for Child Protection, who is away from the
house on urgent parliamentary business, I provide the following answer.
(1) By referral
from a state government agency or a community sector organisation.
(2) Stronger Families will provide two six-monthly
reports to the Department of Communities to assess the outcomes.
Department of Communities has a grant agreement with Stronger Families based on
the state government's standard template, which is publicly available.
