Answered on

CARING DADS PROGRAM — PEEL REGION

818. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the minister representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I 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.

(1) How will 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?

Hon 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.

(3) The Department of Communities has a grant agreement with Stronger Families based on the state government's standard template, which is publicly available.
