Joint Community Peak Bodies Statement on Tune Review, Ombudsman Report and Fams Report: Time to Act for the Protection of Vulnerable Children

Three new reports have been released recently, which demonstrate the need for an urgent overhaul of the way NSW provides services to young people who are vulnerable and at risk.

The NSW Community Sector Peak Bodies welcome the release of the Tune Review, the Ombudsman’s special report More than Shelter, and Fams’ Investing in Children and Their Families.

The three reports quantify the crisis facing our community.

We need a system that is coordinated, integrated and evidence-informed. We need a system that is focused on early intervention and prevention. We need to know the outcomes of the reviews into the OOHC and youth homelessness systems. We need better measurement that contributes to building the evidence base of what works. We need more targeted interventions.
