The Northern Territory Council of Social Services Inc. (NTCOSS) has published a new framework that will have a significant impact in nurturing the growth of the community-controlled sector.
NTCOSS led the development of the Vision for a Coordinated Service System to Promote Child and Family Wellbeing following over 18 months of consultation across the Northern Territory with focus groups, forums, and additional meetings with key stakeholders.
Presented in a practical and accessible format, the framework promotes the vision that all Northern Territory children grow up in families and communities where they can be safe, healthy and have opportunities to have a strong cultural identity and reach their full potential.
“We hope this will generate discussion and lead to a change in the way we respond to our children and their families. We also hope it will bring about positive change, a better future and a stronger society.”
– Wendy Morton, NTCOSS Executive Director
