In 2016, Mel partnered with Australian Development Agency for Statistics and Information Systems (ADASIS) to deliver the Intensive Early Childhood Development (IECD) Support Project evaluation. The IECD Project was an opportunity to trial and evaluate a range of intensive early childhood development and parent-child relationship interventions with families experiencing significant vulnerability, due to their complex needs or multiple areas of difficulties.

As a result of the success of this pilot project, we are thrilled to share this media release announcing the launch of 12 additional early childhood learning and development services across Queensland. Mel is very proud to be a member of the project team which evaluated the initial pilot, one which provided incredible outcomes across all fields.
