One of the most strategic pieces of work WACOSS has led is the development of the WA Outcomes Measurement Framework, in partnership with Department of Premier and Cabinet and with oversight from the Supporting Communities Forum Working Group. With a growing recognition that shared outcomes are vital to drive a unified vision for the wellbeing of all Western Australians, the Framework provides the scaffolding to support a transition to outcomes focused service delivery.
A culmination of conversations with over 1000 sector representatives, and an iterative process with key stakeholders, the Framework importantly also supports whole-of-government and a whole-of-sector integration and innovation. This is of the utmost importance given that traditional service models and siloed funding programs have repeatedly failed to make inroads to support those most vulnerable, who experience entrenched disadvantage.
The Framework has been endorsed by the Community Safety and Family Support Cabinet Sub Committee.
