The Department for Child Protection and Family Support has developed the Building Safe and Strong Families: Earlier Intervention and Family Support Strategy in partnership with the community services sector to enable the service system to be more responsive and effective for the most vulnerable families in Western Australia.
The Strategy focuses on four key areas:
Delivering shared outcomes through collective effort
A culturally competent service system
Diverting families from the child protection system
Preventing children entering out-of-home care
