The problems experienced by children, young people and families are too often compounded by poor quality, and at best patchy service responses.
Reform of Australia's child and family welfare system requires a comprehensive, strategic and long term planning approach, by all levels of government, non-government agencies and the community itself.
A Time to Invest paints a picture of how we might establish opportunities to empower and enrich Australia's families and children.
A Time to Invest was launched by Larry Anthony MP Minister for Children and Youth on 2nd September 2002 at the ACWA/CAFWAA Conference. A PDF version can be downloaded here or printed copies can be ordered with this form
