The FPR is an initiative funded by the Victorian government that aims to foster strong families with children who are safe and thriving and parents who are supported to create a safe and nurturing home environment.

MacKillop Family Services is delivering the program in nine rural and metro areas of Victoria.

While parent and child outcome measures are being sought, the program’s implementation is also being evaluated. This will enable an understanding of what works across contexts and what translates for sustainability. Long term, this smart use of implementation science will drive positive outcomes for families.
