Community engagement

To support the quantitative data in our epidemiological approach, we also seek the voice of system users, including those with lived experience, professionals and community members, to understand and evaluate the impact of changes made to the Child and Family Support System (CFSS)

Lived Experience Network

The Early Intervention Research Directorate established the Lived Experience Network (LEN) as a result of the co-design process. The directorate continues to support this group of system advisors from diverse ages and backgrounds. The LEN provides people with lived experience with an ongoing mechanism to be involved in shaping the planning, monitoring and review of the Child and Family Support System.

Aboriginal Community Engagement

The Aboriginal Community Engagement team (part of the Early Intervention Research Directorate) facilitates the implementation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander System Design Criteria and Co-design Principles. These were developed during the Child and Family Support System co-design process.
