Launching early 2021!
It Takes 6 is an exciting partnership between Every Child and ARACY Australia. This communications tool will help us highlight the 6 main areas of need that children and young people require to thrive.
IT TAKES 6 for every child to start school ready to learn and every young person to leave school ready for life and work.
COVID-19 has exposed the underlying discrimination existing in Australia – the divide is growing for those who can access the supports they need, and those who cannot. Too many children and young people are missing out on the 6 basic elements needed to be safe, confident in themselves and developing well.
What are the 6?
The earlier we get support to children and young people the better they do. We need integrated investment and service systems across government, dedicated towards children and young people getting their 6.
We know children in jobless families are
- 4 times more likely to be homeless than in families where an adult works
- Nearly twice as likely to be bullied or face social exclusion
- Almost two and a half times more likely to be missing out on learning at home.
~That’s three basic “IT TAKES 6” ingredients missing already~
