Roadmap for Reform: strong families; safe children

On 13 April 2016, the Victorian Government officially launched the Roadmap for Reform: strong families, safe children, as one of its key platforms to respond to the Royal Commission into Family Violence. The Roadmap sets out once-in-a-generation changes designed to improve the lives of vulnerable Victorian children, young people and families. It outlines three strategic reform directions:

  • building supportive and culturally strong communities and an enhanced role for universal services
  • supporting children, young people and families in need with integrated wraparound supports and targeted early interventions
  • strengthening home–based care and improving outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care

A phased approach to reform has been developed to enable effective co-design, deliver early success and set the foundation for longer-term sustainable change.

We are working closely with experts, practitioners and the many community leaders and organisations committed to advancing the Roadmap for Reform and delivering the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.

The Roadmap complements other key reform initiatives across Victoria, including the Education State, the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Victoria’s 10-Year Mental Health Plan, Health 2040 and Ending Family Violence: Victoria’s Plan for Change.
