Policy, Advocacy & Sector Development
The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare represents the interests of child and family sector service providers at all levels of policy development.
We work closely with policy makers to ensure that Victoria’s community organisations are able to meet the needs of the vulnerable children and families that rely on their services.
The Centre hosts regular Sector Development Forums on a range of topics, as well as undertaking one-off events to respond to specific issues that impact the child and family sector.
As the peak body, the Centre is Victoria’s leading advocate for child and family service providers. We campaign on behalf of our membership and wider sector through a range of mechanisms, including our close relationships with the Department of Human Services and all sides of politics.
