Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
What is the Performance Report for?
Under the terms of the Families and Communities Programme Grant Agreement, the Families and
Children Performance Report must be completed twice annually and submitted by 28 February and
31 July. The Report is designed to collect Families and Children (FaC) data as evidence to support
ongoing funding for the Families and Communities Programme (FCP).
Communities for Children Facilitating Partners (CfC FP) are responsible for compiling and completing
the Performance Report. Community Partners should not be given the template to complete. To
collect necessary data from Community Partners, it is suggested that Facilitating Partners provide
Community Partners with an abridged version of the template. An example, which can be adapted to
individual Facilitating Partner specifications, is provided at Attachment A.
How your information is used
The FaC Performance Report template is designed to gather the necessary information to:
1) Assess your performance in meeting your Grant Agreement deliverables and fulfilling the
requirements of the FaC Performance Framework. For more information see the FaC
Performance Framework.
2) Assess overall performance of the programme within the FaC Performance Framework:
a) How well we are reaching vulnerable and disadvantaged families;
b) How well the FaC is achieving its objectives; and
c) Identifying trends, gaps, etc. to build the evidence base and inform future funding decisions
and policy development.
3) Fulfil departmental obligations to:
a) Promote the efficient, effective, economical and ethical use of Commonwealth funding as
required by the Financial Management Act 1997 and the Public Governance, Performance
and Accountability Act 2013;
b) Report against the Department’s Key Performance Indicators in its Annual Report to
Parliament; and
c) Inform our Minister of progress towards programme outcomes.
PDF template
Organisations funded to deliver more than one Activity must complete a separate template for each
Activity delivered, i.e. Children and Parenting Support, CfC Facilitating Partners or Intensive Family
Support Services.
Each template is automatically generated by the Department’s funding management system (FOFMS)
and is linked to a particular funded Activity. Once issued, a template cannot be transferred to a
different funded Activity.
The template is developed using Smartform technology, which gathers data in a uniform manner
which is automatically loaded against the correct provider and Activity in FOFMS.
It is therefore important that details for each Activity are entered into the correct template, identified by
the prefilled Activity Title and Activity ID details printed on the front page of the template.
In order to fit into system capabilities, the template includes limits on the size of text boxes, with the
maximum number of characters or words identified where relevant. Providers may, however, submit
further information as attachments.

Improvements made to the February Report
The Government’s red tape reduction programme aims to reduce unnecessary regulation and red
tape costs on business, community organisations, and individuals.
Providers submitting client data through the FSPDS as part of the trial will only be required to submit
data via FSPDS for the period 1 July 2014 to 31 December 2014.
The following questions have been removed from the February template:
•
‘Objectives – What did you plan to achieve’ question;
•
‘With which Outcome does this activity align’ question;
•
The ‘Deliverables’ section;
•
The ‘What Works’ section;
•
The ‘Additional Information/Feedback’ section; and
•
The question asking for further comments on client outcome data collection.
Client data – Who have you assisted this reporting period?
A client is anyone who receives a direct FaC service. This term is used generically and encompasses
similar terminology such as ‘participant’, ‘member’ and ‘customer’.
Those who enjoy a flow on benefit from a family member’s access to FaC services are not counted as
clients.
Example: If a mother and her child receive direct case management services, other family
members may benefit indirectly from this service (e.g. siblings); however only the mother and
child are counted as clients.
A direct service is a service delivered to a client by a FaC provider with the specific intent to
contribute to achieving a FaC outcome.
Make sure that you read and understand the introductory notes and examples.
Provide details of all clients who have attended your service and received a direct service.
Note:
•
Providers who do not deliver direct services to clients – e.g. peak bodies, services who only
undertake research or deliver web based activities, etc. should enter ‘0’ at 1a and are not required
to complete further questions in Part 1;
•
Where possible, provide a count of unique clients. i.e. if a client attends more than one of your
service activities, count that person only once, rather than once per service activity;
•
CfC Facilitating Partners should direct each Community Partner to provide unique client counts.
CfC FPs are not expected to track unique clients who access services delivered by different
Community Partners.
Do not include clients who:
•
Attended promotional events and family fun days;
•
Received straightforward referrals and were redirected to another service; or
•
Received assistance that involved the provision of information, with no direct participation in your
service.
Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
1.
How many clients participated directly in eligible activities?
a)
Total Clients
Record (by age group) all clients who received a FaC service during the reporting
period.
b)
Of the clients at 1a, how many attended your service during the previous July
to December reporting period?
This question is only asked in the July reporting template each year.
Record the number of those clients who received an FaC service during this reporting
period, who also received an FaC service from your Organisation in the July –
December reporting period of this financial year.
Why? Asking this question in the second reporting period each year (i.e. January to
June) allows FaC to more accurately identify the total number of unique clients
assisted in any given financial year. This is necessary for the FaC to report to
government in the Department’s Annual Report.
Of the clients in 1a, how many have identified themselves as:
c)
Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander?
Record the total number of clients who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
Why? People who are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent are a priority
target group for FaC services.
The percentage of FaC clients who are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent
is published in the Department’s Annual Report.
d)
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD)?
Record the total number of clients who were born overseas and who speak little or no
English at home.
Do not include any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander clients in this count.
Why? Those whose cultural and/or linguistic diversity presents a disadvantage to
fully participating in the community (e.g. poor language skills inhibit participation in
education, employment, social activities) are a priority group for FaC services.
The percentage of FaC clients who are CaLD is a known ‘vulnerable and at-risk of
disadvantage’ priority target group and reported in the Department’s Annual Report.
e)
Having a disability
Record all clients who have a disability that affects their quality of life and/or hinders
their ability to fully participate in the community, e.g. participation in education,
employment, social activities.
Why? People with a disability are known to be at greater risk of disadvantage. FaC
uses this as a proxy measure for vulnerability.
Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
2.
How would you describe each adult client identified at 1a?
Count each of the adult clients who attended your service in one of the categories listed. The
total of clients listed in questions 2 a) to 2 f) must be equal to the total adults listed in 1 a).
Do not count youth who are also parents here. This section collects data on adult
demographics only. Young parents are recorded in the next set of categories section.
All adult clients who do not fit into categories a) to e) should be entered at f).
Why? Analysis of this data provides an insight into the level of:
• Services provided to demographic groups of particular interest to FaC and
• Professional skills development and community capacity building provided by FaC.
3.
How many of the clients at 1 a) fall into the following categories?
Record all clients (adults, youth and children) who fall into any of the demographic categories
listed. Include clients as in as many categories as relevant.
a)
Young parents <20
Why? Young parents less than 20 years and their children are particularly vulnerable
to disadvantage and are a priority target group for FaC services.
b)
Young parents 20-25
Why? Young parents, 20-25 years may be at risk of disadvantage.
c)
From a family whose main source of income is believed to be from Centrelink
or Department of Veterans’ Affairs
•
If services collect this data for their own purposes, or if it is appropriate to ask
clients for this information, services should report this figure.
•
Where appropriate, the provider may use professional judgement to answer this
question.
•
Providers are not expected to ask clients for this information in a way that causes
distress or if it is inappropriate to do so. Discuss alternatives with your Grant
Agreement Manager.
Why? Income support is used as a proxy measure of disadvantage and vulnerability.
We gather this to assess how well FaC reaches appropriate target groups.
d)
From a family known to have Centrelink income support payments subject to
income management.
This data is only required of providers who have reason to collect this information.
Why? Responses will be used to compare against the BAFW trial site results.
e)
From a family known to be referred by, or involved with, child protection.
Provide this if your service has received a warm referral from a child protection
agency or if your service works in collaboration with child protection in relation to a
client.
This data is only required of providers who have reason to collect this information.
Why? This is used to assess the extent of FaC collaboration with Child Protection Agencies in
line with the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009–2020.
Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
Key Service Activities
Key service activities are the individual components of a service provider’s FaC service delivery.
Each service activity includes all components that, in combination, contribute towards a common
initiative. E.g. a provider delivers the ‘Education for a Future’ initiative that aims to promote positive
education outcomes for children of newly arrived refugee families. While including the individual
components for out of school hours groups, parent education support and casework, the ‘Education
for a Future’ initiative is one key service activity.
Providers should think about how each service activity works toward achieving FaC outcomes. This
provides data in a format that:
•
Reduces the amount of mandatory data required, while allowing providers to present additional
information if they wish; and
•
Allows plenty of room to provide additional information that providers feel is important, including in
the form of an attachment if necessary.
This Report only requires information about your performance in achieving FaC outcomes.
Providing details of day-to-day activities that are unrelated to achieving FaC outcomes is not
necessary.
Complete only one Key Service Activity sub-form entry per service activity. The aim is to gather
necessary service activity information, reducing the time taken to complete the report.
New service activity sub-forms can be added as required (up to a limit of 25). If your organisation
delivers more than 25 service activities, these may be attached as separate documents.
Note: if attaching additional service activity information, ensure that the same format used in the
Performance Report template is followed. The template at Attachment A may be used for this
purpose.
•
There are five questions for each service activity sub-form. The first four focus on collecting
information about what was achieved rather than a detailed description of how it was achieved.
This provides the key information required for FaC assessment.
•
The final question allows additional information to be provided about the service that is used to
assess individual service performance. Supporting detail can be attached if desired.
Examples
1. A provider delivers kindy gym in four different locations, to four different client demographic
groups. This should be reported as one service activity, with any differentiating details of the
four different groups (e.g. if a particular target group, or different community partner) included
against the final question in Part titled Key Service Activities.
2. A provider delivers a ‘Building Better Parks’ community strategy which aims to involve a
number of communities in improving their local parks. The strategy involves engaging
community organisations and businesses, a promotion campaign, community forums, weekend
busy bees, a colouring competition for school children and family group activities. This would
be included as one service activity which might be recorded as follows:
Title: Building Better Parks
Type of Activity: community development/capacity building
Outputs: at the demographic question select NO – as the programme is aimed at the whole
community
Outcome Statement: Parktown businesses and residents have built a stronger sense of
community, developed skills, and established new connections and friendships while
collaborating to plan, design and construct safe, quality community spaces for their families.
Narrative describing the individual components, their achievements, client groups, etc. would
be included against the final question in Key Service Activities.
Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
What were the key service activities undertaken to deliver your service?
a)
Title of activity
This should be a descriptive name for the service activity only.
b)
Type of activity
Select the most appropriate value from the pick list. The ‘other’ category should only be
selected where your service activity clearly does not fit with one of the categories listed.
If more than one category in the pick list is applicable to your activity, select the category that
best describes the main focus of the activity. If required, further explanation can be included
at the final question in Key Service Activities.
Why? These activity service types were designed to be generic rather than specific to enable
the types of services to be categorised and analysed for mapping and planning purposes,
including the identification of service gaps. They were derived from the most commonly
reported service types in past reports.
Examples
1. A provider delivers the ‘Education for a Future’ initiative that aims to promote positive
education outcomes for children of newly arrived refugee families. The initiative involves
running out of school hours groups, providing parent education support, as well as
casework. Rather than selecting the ‘other’ category (and listing all components e.g. ‘out
of school program’, ‘parenting/family skills training’ and ‘case management’ select the
following one category:
Type of Activity:
‘Multidisciplinary/Whole Family’
2. A provider delivers a kindy gym in four different locations, to four different client
demographic groups. This would be included as one service activity. The kindy gym
employs a family support worker who assists parents with referrals and parenting/family
skills sessions are also arranged as part of the program. Rather than selecting the ‘other’
category (and listing all components e.g. Early childhood, Parenting/family skills training
and referral for ATSI children and families), select the following single category:
Type of Activity: early childhood
For each example above, narrative describing the individual components would be
included against the final question in Key Service Activities.
c)
Suburb/town/community where this activity was delivered?
Include the location name/s of where the service activity is delivered.
If service activity is delivered in multiple nearby locations, the regional name may be recorded
instead. E.g. City of Logan, rather than listing five individual suburbs within the City of Logan.
Total clients for the activity for this reporting period
Record the total clients who participated in this service activity during the reporting period. If a
non-direct service type that has no direct clients e.g. Community Development, enter ‘0’.
Was this activity designed for or targeted at clients from a particular demographic
group/s?
Select ‘Yes’ only if the service activity is designed for or targeted at a particular demographic group.
If designed for a specific target group but open to all families with young children, tick ‘Yes’ and record
only those clients in the target demographic.
Do not include details of untargeted demographic groups. If the activity is designed for a generic
audience, but happens to be attended by participants who share a common demographic
background, select ‘No’. More details may be included in the question: How was the activity
delivered?

Why? The data assists the Department to identify services designed for and delivered to specific
demographic groups in response to local need. It also identifies where specific demographic
groups are located and what their needs may be.
Demographic group/s targeted
If ‘Yes’ is selected for the above question, this section should be completed. Up to three demographic
groups per service activity can be selected from the pick list.
Select the most appropriate value from the pick list where possible. If your service activity is targeted
to more than three listed demographic groups, select the main three.
The ‘other’ category should only be selected where your service activity clearly does not fit with one
of the categories listed. Do not use the ‘other’ category to further refine an existing category. More
information may be entered at the final question in Part 3 if necessary.
Why? The demographic group options are designed to be generic rather than specific to enable
demographics to be readily analysed for mapping and planning purposes. Values were derived
from the most commonly reported demographics in past reports.
Enter the number of clients who attended from each group.
Note: Individual demographic groups need not be mutually exclusive. If applicable, a client may be
recorded against more than one demographic group. Therefore the sum of clients recorded here may
exceed the total clients entered for the service activity.
Example: A total of 100 clients attended a playgroup activity designed for young Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander parents. Of the 100 total clients attended the activity:
• 50 were young parents but only 30 of these were Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients;
and
• 50 clients were children 0<5 but only 30 of these were Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
clients
Families and Children Performance Report – User Guide – February 2015
The number of clients would be entered as follows:
1. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (60)
2. Young parents <20 (50)
3. Children 0-5 years (50)
What outcomes has this activity achieved?
Provide a precise statement or abstract that summarises the activity specific outcomes achieved by
this service activity.
Example: Socially isolated parents were taught new social skills in a casual, supportive
environment and encouraged to engage in their community.
• Do not describe the methods used to achieve outcomes – e.g. a playgroup was run two days per
week for socially isolated parents. This should be provided under ‘any additional comments about
the service activity’.
• Do not enter a prescribed FaC Outcome here.
Why? This provides specific information on what each service activity is meant to achieve. When
collated, this information will build a picture of the varied elements involved in achieving the FaC
Performance Framework Outcomes.
How was the activity delivered?
This is a free text field where you can include all qualitative information that may be required for your
Agreement Manager to properly assess your performance.
Information reported here should include:
• A description of the service activity (Keep details precise and relevant to the FaC);
• An explanation of the community need/s this activity addresses;
• Community Partner details (if a CfC FP Activity);
• Unexpected outcomes or achievements, if any; and/or
• Challenges to achieving desired outcomes and strategies used to overcome those challenges, if
any.
Enter text directly into the box.
Why? This information provides a precise snap shot of:
• what your service activity is doing
• the issues in the community where the service activity is delivered and
• how you are working to address these issues

Performance Report Template
Client Data – Who have you assisted this reporting period?
Complete this part by counting the number of adults and children who participated directly in FaC service
activities during the reporting period. Where possible, count unique clients only once.
Example 1
• A FaC service delivered a mothers’ group that ran once a week during school term. Each
participant should be counted only once, even if she attended all sessions.
Example 2
• A FaC service delivered a playgroup once a week. The same FaC service also ran a six week
Parenting Program. Jane attended the playgroup with her toddler, and also attended the
Parenting Program with her partner. Jane would be counted once.
Note: CfC Facilitating Partners may not be in the position to track unique clients who access
services delivered by different Community Partners. In this case the Facilitating Partner should
direct Community Partners to follow the advice above.
Exclude clients who:
• attended promotional events and family fun days;
• received straightforward referrals and were redirected to another service; or
• received assistance that involved the provision of information, with no direct participation in
your service.
