Research and Evaluation
In a 2021-2022 partnership, Australian Catholic University is assessing the mid to long-term impact of our Young Aboriginal Mothers Program, (YAMP) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers and their children. This partnership and engagement is characterised by high levels of cultural safety, whereby engagement is culturally appropriate and respectful. The project will also make recommendations for the program’s future operation and expansion while also reconnecting to mothers and children that have been part of the program.
In 2015, the Young Aboriginal Mothers Program was previously evaluated by Women’s Health Psychology, Centre for Health Research and the School of Medicine at the University of Western Sydney. Access the YAMP Research Paper.
