“Child protection is fast becoming one of the single most important issues in Australia with an increasing amount of children entering Out Of Home Care. For many families and in particular children, we must begin to seek new initiatives, include and listen to communities and experts alike. Without change in policy and practice, families and children will continue to be at risk. We must seek a simpler and better way to stem the flow of our children into the child protection system.”
