Child and family services reforms in Victoria

Strong families, safe children: Directions in Victorian child and family services
Thursday 26 July, 1050 – 1110

Presenters

Argiri Alisandratos
Deputy Secretary, Children & Families Reform, Department of Health and Human Services

Abstract
Building on the Secretary’s vision for the future, this presentation will look at a new conceptual framework to move us towards this future state, building on new pathways to support. The new framework will use the platform of child and family services, including family preservation and reunification services, to deliver outcomes for vulnerable children and young people in Victoria.

This involves a collaborative and shared approach to assessment and planning, using new governance structures to strengthen shared accountability, and strengthen sustainable connections between children, families and the community.
