A fresh start

The fresh start program aims to reorientate and reform our child protection system.

Our focus will move from statutory intervention, where children are removed from their homes when it is too late, to a system that connects families with effective, evidence-based early intervention and universal services.

Our system will acknowledge children and young people as experts in their own lives and their voice will be at the centre of our decision making and the design of a new system.
