Anglicare Australia submission on a ‘public health approach’ to protecting children
Mar 29, 2019, 16:57 PM
Anglicare Australia has responded to the Productivity Commission's consultation on systems for protecting children. To work in the best interests of children, we must ensure the wider support networks are strong and supportive. Anglicare Australia has called for purposeful investment in supporting families to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children can develop. It is also clear that outcomes are worse for children in care than those who have never entered the care system. We argue that the best approach is to support parents and families to provide loving and secure homes.
