Natasha Ludowyk (Ludowyk Evaluation), Braedan Hogan (Amaze)
The roll-out of the NDIS requires the disability sector to be more agile and evidence-based than ever before. Amaze (the peak body for Autism in Victoria), has invested in significant organisational transformation to meet the requirements of the new system and how impact is measured, balanced with the capacity to influence system reform through advocacy.
Braedan Hogan (Amaze) and Natasha Ludowyk (Ludowyk Evaluation) will describe the challenges of transforming to deliver services and advocacy, and meaningfully measure impact, in  a rapidly evolving sector, and how evaluative strategies have been applied to each of these within a holistic MEL framework.
