We need systemic change to address intractable social problems, and systemic change is hard to achieve. It requires innovation and collaboration to meet the complex challenge.
This webinar will share why collaborative philanthropy is a powerful tool for achieving systemic change. Our panelists will reflect on learnings from the Out of Home Care Philanthropic Funders Network, and how this model of collaborative philanthropy can be applied to support broader systemic change.
For children and young people who cannot live safely at home – whether temporarily or permanently – out-of-home care is intended to keep them safe and support them to heal and thrive. Unfortunately, children and young people in out-of-home care do not always receive the care and supports they need, and the complexity and challenges of the system illustrate a pressing need for wide-scale and systemic solutions to elicit meaningful change. The Out of Home Care Philanthropic Funders Network has made a strong impact on the out- of-home care sector in Victoria to support system-wide change that improves the experiences and outcomes of children and young people who have an out-of-home care experience.
