Collaborate for children: scoping project

Published on (GMT) by Luke Stevens
Increasingly, governments in Australia have recognised place-based approaches as a means to tackle disadvantage and address the complex problems faced by children and families in today's society. While many place-based initiatives have generated rich learning experiences and positive results, too often lessons have not been broadly shared and mistakes have been repeated. Anecdotal evidence suggests that a better coordinated practice, policy and research agenda could substantially increase the impact of place-based approaches across Australia. With this in mind, leaders in place-based practice, research, policy and philanthropy were engaged in in-depth consultations to explore and identify issues and opportunities for advancing Australian place-based reform.
