Improving child-centred outcomes in the Out of Home Care sector.
At the end of 2016, NSW government announced “the single biggest reform to child welfare” in the state.
This has catalysed an overhaul of the Out of Home Care sector with aims of reducing the number of children entering the care system and improving the long-term health, educational and wellbeing outcomes for these vulnerable young people. We are currently in the midst of this sector-wide shift to The Permanency Support Program.
The Navigating the Permanency Support Program conference will showcase new trials, practices and recommendations from across NSW, along with leading case studies from other states, to help bring clarity to the reform agenda.
Learn how the sector is:
Focusing on restoration and preservation Boosting recruitment, retention and professional workforce support
Implementing therapeutic, evidence-based care models
