About the organisation
The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare (the Centre) is the peak body for child and family services in Victoria. For over 100 years we have advocated for the rights of children and young people to be heard, to be safe, to access education and to remain connected to family, community and culture. We represent over 150 community service organisations (CSOs), students and individuals throughout Victoria working across the continuum of child and family services, from prevention and early intervention to the provision of out-of-home care.
The Centre provides public policy and program advice, deliver sector training, facilitate and publish research, advocate for positive reform and work with our member agencies to make sure children and families have access to the services and support they need. We also provide consultancy services for the child and family services sector, which include developing frameworks, writing research-informed practice manuals, developing tools and resources, designing and delivering targeted training, working closely with community service organisations, local government and state government departments to build workforce capability. We run regular forums across a range of policy and practice areas to capture the views of child and family services organisations and their clients and manage various projects designed to improve practice in the sector.
