This publication summarises the second evaluation period of PICSAR (June 2005 to May 2006). The evaluation will be used by VicHealth to prepare guidelines for future planning of PICSAR.

The evaluation focused on two areas that are crucial to PICSAR:

  • capacity building, including VicHealth’s support for RSAs and the extent to
    which PICSAR can sustain itself; and
  • developing partnerships.

The evaluation then assessed whether RSAs, through their involvement with PICSAR, have created more opportunities for a broader range of people to participate in sport and active recreation.
