The Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) are coordinating the development of a national plan to improve the wellbeing of children and young people. A number of activities are in the pipeline, including a review of evidence for effective intervention with children and young people, and consultation with children, young people, parents and workers. There are a range of ways that services can get involved and support this valuable project. Services could assist by promoting an online survey, assisting in consulting with children and young people (with the support of ARACY staff), or by providing comment on draft reports as they are developed.
For more information on this initiative, check out the Nest Project Website.
This initiative is funded by the Queensland Government.
