Strategy & Design

System Transformation is building upon its progress by developing options that align with other significant NSW Government reforms and initiatives.  It is also building upon and strengthening existing infrastructure, programs and service networks, as well as determining priorities for implementation.

The development of detailed options for the future system is underway, using the evidence base established in the first two phases.

We are also developing a whole-of-government strategy and outcomes framework to guide the reforms. This strategy comprises: a multi-agency ten-year vision, supported by specific goals for the reforms. It also includes four strategic priorities:

  1. The needs of children, young people and families are at the centre of decisions.
  2. The needs of children, young people and families will be addressed earlier.
  3. Children, young people and families receive the right service at the right time.
  4. A responsive and highly skilled workforce for better outcomes.

The system transformation will produce significant benefits by delivering a system that provides timely support to prevent harm and keep families together where it is safe to do so.
