Outcomes Evaluation

Keep Them Safe was introduced in 2009 in response to recommendations from the Special Commission of Inquiry into Child Protection Services in NSW. Keep Them Safe included a commitment to evaluate.

The Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) commissioned independent evaluators [a consortium led by the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) of the University of NSW] to undertake the Outcomes Evaluation.
