About us
Parenting Connection WA (PCWA) commenced on the 1st April 2017 as a partnership between Anglicare WA and Ngala to provide universal parenting services in nine regional and metropolitan areas. Anglicare WA subcontracts Wanslea to deliver PCWA in two regions.

The consortium partnership was established to deliver high-quality, locally-connected, place-based parenting services. The partnership is founded upon the active collaboration of the organisations, committed to working together and with parents, communities and other service providers in the delivery of an integrated suite of effective and efficient parenting services across Western Australia (WA).

PCWA is designed to ensure that parents and caregivers of children and young people across WA have the skills, knowledge and confidence to nurture the wellbeing and development of their children.

Scope of the Evaluation
The nine regions of PCWA are very diverse in factors such as location, environment, population, size, diversity of cultural groups and parenting concerns of the families. The aim of the evaluation is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the PCWA place-based model and partnership approach.

The evaluation will focus on the following key areas:

  • How effective are the components of the PCWA model, including Local Area Partnership Groups, a centralised Service Development Unit and placed based coordination?
  • How are economies of scales achieved through the partnerships of the three agencies?
  • What evidence exists to demonstrate:

         - place based service coordination supporting the local community?
         - local Parenting Capacity Fund meeting local needs?
         - building local capacity to support families within the specified local communities?

This evaluation will require travel to some rural and/or remote regions. It is anticipated that the work will involve interviews and focus groups and the deliverable is a written report.

The Evaluation will be undertaken in 2020 and a final report submitted by January 2021.
