Client: Wesley Mission Queensland

Project: Paradise Kids: service model redesign

Background: Beacon Strategies are partnering with Wesley Mission Queensland to redesign the exisiting Paradise Kids service model, to an evidence-based, holistic and financially sustainable child and family service hub.

Purpose: The purpose of the project is to redesign the existing Paradise Kids service model .

Specific project objectives include:

  • Evidence review and policy scan: A scan of available service models and the current policy environment will be conducted in two waves, to inform WMQ of options to redesign an evidence-based Paradise Kids service model.

  • Service model design: Following the endorsement of an option(s), a public facing summary document will be developed to ensure that service model can be easily communicated to funders, stakeholders and the community.

  • Partnership and pathway scan: A scan of partnership and pathway opportunities for the redesigned Paradise Kids model will build on the existing identified strengths of the Paradise Kids referral network, and explore future options for partnering locally (e.g. in-reaching, referrals).

  • Funding and business model options: Acknowledging the need for a sustainable funding model, we will present potential investment scenarios compared to the current funding model.

As a mission-based health and social services consultancy, Beacon Strategies is committed to partnering with NGOs to better plan, design, implement, evaluate and communicate their work in delivering health outcomes for local communities.
