New Event

Keep Them Safe seminar 19th May 2015, 9.00am-12.30pm Ballina Surf Club

We warmly invite your participation in this timely seminar and workshop

Learning from the Keep Them Safe program evaluation: Improving Child Protection Outcomes in the Northern Rivers

Keep Them Safe (KTS) is arguably the most significant change to child protection policy in NSW since the introduction of mandatory reporting in 1987. But what impact is the reform having on real outcomes for children and families in the Northern Rivers? To what extent are human services agencies achieving the KTS objectives, and what action can we take to improve outcomes for children?

This free seminar and workshop will share the findings of the most extensive program evaluation conducted in NSW, and provide opportunities for human services sector organisations to share insights and consider action that we can take to improve outcomes for children and families in the Northern Rivers region.

Chief Investigators of the KTS Outcomes Evaluation from the Social Policy Research Centre at UNSW will present both local and state-wide findings and evaluation methodology and will engage in discussion on the implications for service delivery in the Northern Rivers: kylie valentine (SPRC) and Ilan Katz (SPRC)

Lunch provided afterwards, please RSVP for catering purposes
