VICTORIA'S PEAK BODY FOR CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES

For over 100 years, the Centre has advocated for the rights and wellbeing of children, young people and families in Victoria.

We advocate for the rights of children and young people to be heard, to be safe, access education and to remain connected to family, community and culture.

Victorian children, young people and families are safe, happy and connected, with access to support when they need it.

  • Analysis and reflection: We test knowledge and ideas based on evidence, research and best practice

  • Ethical decision-making: We handle information with care and confidence, and we evaluate and make choices based on ethical principles

  • Creativity: We are willing to do things differently and try new approaches, and we encourage creative thought

  • Collaboration: We share knowledge, time, information and skills, and seek the input and involvement of our members and other organisations in the sector

Policy and Ideas: Develop, influence and advocate for public policies that advance the rights and wellbeing of children, young people and families and address the social, economic and cultural barriers to improving their lives.

Research and Practice: Lead and share research to support innovation and evidence-informed practice.

Capacity Building: Strengthen the capacity of organisations to provide services that best suit the needs of vulnerable families and children.
