Reform and innovation in the out of home care sector – what are your thoughts?

I have noticed over the past few months that there are great efforts being made across Australia to better track the outcomes for infants, children and young people who find themselves in care because of cumulative harm or abuse.

Both government and Non-government organisations appear to be making real efforts to shift from simply putting a roof over a child’s head to ensuring healing environments are created. Whilst much of this change is currently ‘aspirational’ we look forward to the implementation of policy to practice and to ‘real time’ tracking of improvements, rather than just counting beds.

We are keen to hear from you our friends and colleagues as to what you think is either needed to improve outcomes, or what good things you see are happening around Australia already.
