In 2020, 360Edge were invited by the Australian Government Department Health to undertake an evaluation of the $451 million evaluation of the National Ice Action Strategy, designed to reduce harms from the drug ice. There were 31 programs funded under the Strategy right across Australia.
We worked with an expert advisory group to develop a detailed framework and then undertake the evaluation.
We held more than 60 focus groups from right across health, justice and education.
We analysed data on outputs and outcomes collected by the funded programs., focusing on impact and quality.
Our 200 page report details the evaluation outcomes of all 31 programs. Our findings highlighted the importance of proactive evaluation of programs to ensure their effectiveness and responsiveness.
In 2021 we are embarking on the mid point review of the National Drug Strategy.
