Fams CEO on LCSA Conference Panel

Susan joined a panel of Peak leaders, hosted by Dr. Angela Jackson Lead Economist, to discuss the importance of place-based approaches in achieving better outcomes for children and families.

She raised the need for well-resourced and well-managed services that support the reduction of siloing and facilitates opportunities for interservice connection and a widening of the lens of child protection.  

“Trusted relationships and warm referrals are essential for families with challenging and complex needs,” Susan said.

Closing remarks from Fams included the hopes for a shift from a reporting system to a supporting system.

Our Sector Development Officer, Lisa also attended the 2-day Conference. Her favourite takeaway from the day was the session with Amanda Tattersall, on how our power is in the community and the importance of creating credentialed relationship networks.
