Marymead Child and Family Centre


In 2006, Marymead received funding from the ACT Office for Children, Youth and Family Support to provide a range of in-home services to families called the 'Families Together' program.

Marymead has been providing similar family support services for a number of years. Following an initial evaluation of the program undertaken as a student project, the Families Together program staff commissioned ICPS to assist them to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. This evaluation considered both the intensive and family support components of the Families Together program.
