Using the Common Assessment Tool


We invite you to join Fams and DCJ for a closer look at the FCS Common Assessment Tool (CAT), which was released in November 2023 and was developed for providers to adopt a consistent approach when conducting family-led and culturally safe assessments.

This interactive session will be a chance to be introduced to the CAT, consider how it might work for you and your service, and consider some of the experiences identified by the Fams CAT Practice Group and how they could benefit your clients, team and service.

Features of the CAT:

Individuals and families have ownership of their information and don’t have to retell their story each time they see a new service
The assessment process is flexible, transparent, person/family-led and strengths-based
The tool is designed to enhance practice and conversational style assessments
The CAT Guide is a comprehensive, professional development guide for practitioners that incorporates key practice theories, policies and frameworks into practice

Curijo led the design process for the CAT. This Aboriginal-owned professional services company worked closely with providers, individuals, families and key stakeholders to ensure the final version of the tool incorporates the views and voices of families.

The facilitators for this session are:
Lauren Stracey – Sector Engagement Manager, FAMS
Jessica Rojas – A/Manager in Early Intervention Program and Implementation, NSW Department of Communities & Justice
