Monitoring and evaluation
Monitoring and evaluation are important aspects of Safer Pathway that help to ensure the service is working effectively to improve safety and support victim-survivors and their children.
- Monitoring is critical for ensuring Safer Pathway is implemented as intended and to enable adjustments to improve Safer Pathway. Different elements of Safer Pathway are regularly monitored by relevant agencies.
- Evaluation provides independent assessment of how effectively Safer Pathway is being implemented and achieving outcomes.
- An independent evaluation of Safer Pathway was completed in 2017. The ARTD Safer Pathway Evaluation Report contains findings on Safer Pathway’s implementation. It also contains recommendations on improving key components of Safer Pathway.
- Recommendations from the evaluation are being implemented by responsible agencies to strengthen Safer Pathway.
