Previous approaches to child protection and wellbeing have been program-based and siloed. They have failed to address the increasing numbers of children entering out-of-home care and their continuing poor outcomes.

The Their Futures Matter reform is breaking the status quo. Our approach involves moving away from a placement-based system to one where children and families are at the centre of everything we do.

Placing children, young people, and families at the centre of design and decision-making means services are specific and targeted to their needs.

The voices of children, young people, and families will help us to create a coordinated service system that significantly improves life outcomes for current and future generations.
