Development of the Building Strong Foundations for Aboriginal Children, Families and Communities (BSF) Program Service Standards

Project Member(s): Homer, C.

Funding or Partner Organisation: New South Wales Department of Health

Start year: 2014

Summary: This Request for Quotation document is to develop the Building Strong Foundations for Aboriginal Children Families and Communities (BSF) program Service Standards. We understand that the BSF Service Standards (The Standards) will assist health services, clinical stream directors, managers and BSF staff to ensure BSF programs are delivered with fidelity so that they support Aboriginal families, children and communities so that Aboriginal children have the best start to life, are healthy, and ready for school. The BSF Service Standards will set out specifications and procedures intended to ensure BSF program systems are culturally safe, reliable and consistently perform the way they were intended to. The BSF Standards will establish a common language that defines quality and safety criteria, they will be practical, outline achievable goals and be based on best practice evidence where available or by consensus of relevant clinical/content experts.
