We seek to create a more socially just society, where the child welfare and family justice systems support children to live safely and thrive within their family, while strengthening the family and community networks of children who cannot live at home. 

We seek to ensure that: 

Families involved with the child welfare system are treated fairly, have their rights respected and are able to make informed decisions; 
Children and families get help they need, so wherever possible children can live safely within their family; 
All children, including those in care, have lasting and supportive relationships throughout their lives; 
Our child welfare system – and wider society – promotes social justice, creating conditions that enable children to achieve their potential; 
Children and families’ voices drive decision making at an individual and strategic level within the child welfare system. 

We do this through: 

A free, specialist advice service for parents and families, supporting them to understand their rights and options, and navigate child welfare processes; 
Supporting local authorities through provision of resources, training and consultancy; 
Finding innovative family-led ways to improve child welfare; 
Promoting families’ voices;  
Research and lobbying for legislative and policy changes.
