The ACT Child, Youth and Family Services Program (the CYFSP), funded by the ACT Community Services Directorate, provides an integrated and collaborative service system for vulnerable children, young people and families in the ACT. The CYFSP commenced in 2012, with 28 non-government organisations providing a range of services in the community.

ICPS developed a detailed Evaluation Plan for the CYFSP, including an evaluation framework, evaluation approach, and a set of tools for data collection during the life of the evaluation.
