Submission to 2015-16 State Budget Community Consultation

Selina Claxton 2015, Research library, State Budget, Submissions

In this submission Anglicare recommends the development and piloting of a three-year innovative, specialised intensive family intervention service in the north of Tasmania. The MyFamily program captures the current momentum for change occurring across Australia to reduce the unnecessary involvement of some families in the statutory child protection system. In particular it focuses on the need to provide earlier intervention in the form of intensive support to keep children with their families and reduce the likelihood that they will enter the out-of-home care system (OOHC) or return them to family or kin as soon as possible if they do enter the care system.
