National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children Fourth Action Plan: 2018-2020

The Fourth Action Plan is the final Action Plan of the National Framework and will continue to build the foundations and evidence base that will enable us to continue to improve outcomes for Australia’s children and young people beyond 2020.

The four key priorities of the Fourth Action Plan are:

  • Improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children at risk of entering, or in contact with child protection systems.
  • Improving prevention and early intervention through joint service planning and investment.
  • Improving outcomes for children in out-of-home care by enhancing placement stability through reunification and other permanent care options. Improving organisations’ ability to keep children and young people safe from abuse.
