Navigating the Permanency Support Program


At the end of 2016, NSW government announced “the single biggest reform to child
welfare” in the state. This has catalysed an overhaul of the Out of Home Care sector
with aims of reducing the number of children entering the care system and improving
the long-term health, educational and wellbeing outcomes for these vulnerable
young people.

We are currently in the midst of this sector-wide shift to The Permanency Support
Program. The Navigating the Permanency Support Program will showcase new
trials, practices and recommendations from across NSW, along with leading case
studies from other states, to help bring clarity to the reform agenda.

Learn how the sector is:
● Focusing on restoration & preservation
● Boosting recruitment, retention & professional workforce support
● Implementing therapeutic, evidence-based care models
● Improving assessments, outcomes measurement & reporting
● Ensuring better health, education & wellbeing outcomes
● Supporting successful transitions to independent living

Who will attend?

● Child Protection
● Out of Home/Foster/Kinship Care
