The redesign of the NSW mandatory reporters guide is a significantly important process that is currently underway. This guide is an essential tool for people who work with children and families, and it plays a critical role in identifying and reporting child abuse and neglect.
Fams is proud to be part of a working group that is dedicated to creating a guide that is more effective, culturally appropriate, and responsive to the needs of children and families.
The importance of the redesign of the NSW mandatory reporters guide cannot be overstated. Aboriginal children are significantly over-represented in the NSW child protection system, and this is a deeply concerning issue. We need to take action to address this and to ensure that Aboriginal children and families receive the support and care that they need.
Fams is optimistic about the impact that the redesigned guide will have on the lives of children and families. Together, we can create a child protection system that is responsive, effective, and equitable, and that ensures that all children and families thrive.
