Stage 1: Discuss and reflect on the principles that underpin your partnership

Before you begin the questionnaire, reflect on why you are partnering and what is important to you in the process. You should also revisit your partnership vision statement, if you have one.

The audit tool is based on the framework depicted in the diagram below, which draws on evidence of what is important for genuine partnerships in service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. The outer circle describes the four key domains that inform all of the processes that occur in the inner circle in order to achieve the central goal of the diagram.

For discussion:

  • Does the framework reflect the way we want to work together?
  • If not, why not, and what are the differences to keep in mind as we move through the audit?

Stage 2: Map your partnership in the context of the community

Download and complete the partnership mapping exercise to consider where your partnership fits in relation to other relationships and stakeholders involved in family support. Consider how the partnership helps to meet the needs of children and families in the community.

Completing the mapping exercise is recommended, but the results are not collected as part of the online audit, so you can continue working on this tool even if you are unable to do so right now.
