The Use of Messages To Effect Change:
CPC-ACCR uses messages to:
• Support the public policy messages of CPC, ECLC and CCAoA.
• Let people to know they have access to child care services.
• Support our efforts in providing care for families and their needs.
• Solicit elected officials’ support for funding child care programs.
• Educate the public and elected offal’s on the demand and supply of child care.
Our Steps The Context of Public Policy Are As Follows:
1. Intelligence gathering— data and potential problems and opportunities are identified, collected and analyzed.
2. Identifying problems.
3. Assessing the consequences of all options.
4. Relating consequences to values— with all decisions and policies there will be a set of values which will be more relevant (for example, economic feasibility and environmental protection) and which can be expressed as a set of criteria, against which performance (or consequences) of each option can be judged.
