The NGO sector is increasingly responsible for a growing proportion and range of service delivery in the child and family welfare area. ACWA’s role is to support the sector’s capacity to provide high quality services that result in good outcomes for children, young people and families.
The NGO sector has a history of commitment and leadership in the area of quality assurance. The Best Practice Unit (BPU) builds on this history and the expertise already developed by ACWA members across training, practice and research. The BPU will seek to underpin the sector’s current growth by developing a workforce building strategy and developing accessible pathways for professional development for staff within the sector. It will also work with members in identifying best practice models and the development of an outcomes based evidence based capturing the effectiveness of their work.
