In 2016, Children, Youth and Families commenced the Strong Families Safe Kids Implementation Plan 2016-2020 (PDF, 2.9MB), an ambitious long term system reform agenda.

The Strong Families Safe Kids Progress Report 2016-2020 (PDF, 1.9MB) and the Advice and Referral 12 Month Summary Report (PDF, 1.2MB) outlines key achievements delivered under Strong Families Safe Kids and the University of Tasmania Summary Evaluation Report (May 2020) (PDF, 545KB) has helped informed our next phase of work.

Strong Families Safe Kids: Next Steps Action Plan 2021-2023 (Strong Families Safe Kids: Next Steps) (PDF, 2.2MB) continues the journey of changing the way government and non-government services work together to shift the curve and improve the wellbeing outcomes for all Tasmanian children through a public health approach.

Strong Families Safe Kids: Next Steps will deliver 34 actions under five key priority areas of the reform agenda:

  1. Child safety and wellbeing is everyone’s business
  2. Building a common understanding of safety and wellbeing
  3. Managing the front door
  4. Providing better support for children and their families, and
  5. Redesigning the Child Safety Service.

The Strong Families Safe Kids: Next Steps Action Plan 2021-2023 – Implementation Plan (PDF, 1.2MB) guides the delivery of the 34 actions contained in Strong Families Safe Kids: Next Steps under the five key priority areas. It outlines timeframes for each action and identifies the benefits that will be achieved through each action.
