How will this campaign help Every Child?
We will call on governments in Australia to initiate the most significant and valuable nation-building project that has ever been undertaken – the Every Child National Wellbeing Commitment, to:
- Establish a National Child Development Fund and a mechanism, such as a National Council for Children, Young People and Families.
- Adopt national wellbeing indicators and targets for child health, education, justice and wellbeing.
- Establish an effective mechanism, within the National Council for Children, Young People and Families to support the active participation of young people in advancing their wellbeing.
- Recognise the leadership and strategies advocated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to improve the wellbeing of their children and young people, as a priority for action.
