Abstract: The South Australian Community Health Research Unit undertook an evaluation of the FEAT program to track the progress of a number of families through the Families Empowered to Act Together (FEAT) program and capture the experiences and perspectives of children, families and stakeholders. Interviews were undertaken with carers and children both currently in the program and those recently exited. The evaluation also documents the development of the FEAT model of service and its aims and objectives; relates the operation of FEAT to understandings in the current literature regarding best practice principles and models for family support programs; and identifies other agencies, programs and services that the FEAT program links with in order to meet the needs of referred families. The evaluation adopted an action research framework employing qualitative and quantitative methods, and has encouraged participation by key stakeholders in the research process.
