Why Council adopted a Children and Families Strategy

The Cumberland Children and Families Strategy 2019 to 2023 provides a clear direction for Council over the next 4 years to support better outcomes for children and families in Cumberland.

It aims to improve the lives of children and their families and ensure that Cumberland is a place where children are safe, have access to quality education and care, have a voice and multiple avenues to participate in community life, including opportunities to develop their health and wellbeing.

The strategy also sets the direction for Council’s own provision of education and care services and programming to support children and families into the future. This direction is provided through key priority areas, strategies and actions.

Key priorities are:

1: Child Protection

2: Education and Care

3: Community Participation

4: Health and Wellbeing
