Child and family support system
- South Australia
Fourth Action Plan actions
- Respect, listen and respond to the diverse lived experience and knowledge of women and their children affected by violence
- 10 Implement community-led and tailored initiatives to address the unique experiences and needs of communities affected by multiple forms of discrimination or inequality.
What are we doing?
The South Australian Government will build a system that provides the right type and intensity of supports, intervening as early as possible where risk exists, to support families and keep children safe.
What is next?
Recognising the significant overlap with domestic and family violence among the populations notified to child protection, the new system will align intensive family support service delivery with domestic and family violence services. This will include ensuring more effective local service coordination and case management.
What difference will we make?
This system will help to ensure that women will not be required to repeat their stories to multiple agencies and that children and their families will receive appropriate and timely support.
