The Menu of Evidence (the Menu) is an online portal and searchable repository of the best available evidence on what works for improving outcomes for children, young people, families, and carers.

The portal allows you to navigate programs by what is relevant to you, including the outcomes you are working to achieve, who you work with and the context.

The Menu is underpinned by a rigorous assessment process and contains evidence behind 45 programs across the areas of child maltreatment, family preservation and reunification.

It includes information on the strength of evidence, cost and implementation considerations and whether programs have been evaluated with Aboriginal children, young people, carers, and families.

This information, in addition to Aboriginal knowledge and client voice, is critical to support decision-making to deliver high-quality, safe, and effective services. 

If you have any questions, you can email the Evidence Strategy team at menu@dffh.vic.gov.au
