This report was commissioned as part of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)’s Roadmap for Reform, a systematic approach to improving the Victorian child and family system, incorporating the statutory child protection system, out-of-home care, and early intervention and prevention services for children and families experiencing vulnerabilities. The purpose of this project was to prepare a ‘menu’ of evidenced-based practices and programs relevant to six key areas, corresponding to a tiered continuum of services:

  • families who function well
  • families who have some difficulties
  • families at risk of child maltreatment
  • families receiving statutory child protection services
  • children living in out-of-home care
  • care leavers.

The project also aimed to provide a set of recommendations to support the implementation of the menu in Victoria.
