Key activities and measuring success
You will need to deliver at least one of these activities and evaluate it using process and impact measures (see planning and delivery considerations). This will allow you to determine whether your LDAT has achieved your intended outcomes. You can also tailor your approach by adding additional activities that suit your community’s needs and evaluating them using additional process and impact measures.
Key activities for delivering and evaluating a parenting program are:
Training or workshops
An event for approximately 20+ attendees that is held for the specific purpose of training community members in a new skill set, and/or delivering a structured presentation aimed at increasing knowledge about risk and/or protective factors associated with an AOD health issue.
Campaigns or awareness raising activities
A coordinated series of targeted messages delivered across one or more platforms (e.g., social media, pamphlets, radio commercials, etc.) that are aimed at minimising risk factors and/or increasing protective factors associated with AOD use.
Events or forums
One or more planned occasions for approximately 10+ attendees where community members and/or relevant stakeholders are invited to come together, either face-to-face or virtually, to share ideas, learn new information, and connect with one another over ideas or activities aimed at minimising risk factors and/or increasing protective factors associated with AOD use.
Evaluation is a critical component of delivering your program and needs to be factored in at every stage of planning and delivery. You’ll find more detailed information on effective evaluation measures in our essential guide for LDATs: Evaluation Tools Resource. Your LDAT will also be guided to select appropriate process and impact measures when you’re developing your Community Action Plan (CAP) online.
