Platforms Guide: Improving children’s wellbeing through community-led change
Platforms is a community-led approach developed by the Centre for Community Child Health that seeks to improve the environments and experiences of children in the communities in which they are born, live, learn and grow. Platforms is founded on a commitment to working in partnership with families, community members, services, governments and other stakeholders to improve the community conditions that shape children’s wellbeing. It provides guidance on how to strengthen community ‘platforms’ – such as safe and supportive neighbourhoods, connected families and high-quality services – for better health and equity for children and their families. The Platforms Guide is designed to support services, community groups and governments to successfully implement the Platforms approach in their local community.
