The Sanctuary model is a trauma informed and responsive method designed to shift organisation culture to foster healing from traumatic events.

This approach is delivered across the MacKillop Family Services Organisation and has been embedded within their special schools.

Our three year evaluation is ongoing and mainly examines teacher and management level outcomes, with some parent and child findings being explored. This evaluation is using implementation science principles to uncover organisational, service and client factors that contribute to the successful roll out of Sanctuary.
