The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare is a not-for-profit peak body for nearly 100 child and family services in Victoria.
Working for vulnerable children, young people and families, the Centre provides sector training, facilitates and publishes research, advocates through campaigns and media relations, and sustains ongoing programs focusing on key areas of the State care system.
These include the voice of children and young people, and specific programs for foster care, kinship care and residential care. We also work and advocate for better transitions for young people leaving State care.
The Centre represents small, medium and large community service organisations across the State, enhancing their capacity to deliver services through engagement and voice in State policy and service development.
An incorporated association, the Centre is guided by a board of 12 directors drawn from our member organisations, together with a chief executive officer and an expert academic member
