Victoria’s Vulnerable Children Strategy

In early May Minister Wooldridge released the Victoria’s Vulnerable Children Strategy, which outlined the government’s long-term commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children.

The Centre was pleased to see that the strategy recognised the four essential components identified by the PVVC Inquiry Panel, which were the need for:

  1. Identification of a definition of vulnerable children and young people
  2. Provision of a performance and accountability framework
  3. Designation of whole-of-government objectives and responsibilities
  4. Delivery of accountability structures to monitor implementation of the strategy

The strategy’s key action areas align closely with the Centre’s eight key priorities, which were highlighted in the Sharing Social Responsibility position paper.

The Centre welcomed the commitment to court and law reforms through creation of legal institutions that are child-friendly, both in decision making and decision making processes.
