The Systems Leadership for Child and Youth Wellbeing collaboration between Every Child and the Australian and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) is gaining traction with positive endorsements received from Premiers and First Ministers.
The project aims to drive systems leadership and facilitate better integrated support to, and improved outcomes for children. We know communities, families and economies prosper when all children are confident, safe and valued. Rather than fragmented programs, the project is working towards a new vision - one where children, young people and families have well coordinated, early access to supports across the breadth of services they need throughout their lives.
The evidence is compelling –the life chances and livelihoods of children can be improved markedly by 'bundling up’ support early to children and better integrating, rather than fragmenting support systems across health, education, housing and more.
It is time for major systems reform and Australia's leaders are coming onboard with endorsement by the Prime Minister and First Ministers across NSW, WA, QLD, NT and SA.
"When our children thrive, our social and economic progress is assured. I commend the ANZSOG–Every Child partnership, and its important work to advance the wellbeing of Australia’s children and young people." The Hon Scott Morrison MP, Prime Minister of Australia
