Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People
The primary function of the inaugural Child Development Council is to prepare an Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People in South Australia with objectives in the areas of health; safety; wellbeing; education; and preparedness for adulthood.
The Council must develop performance indicators that will allow the development and wellbeing of children and young people to be tracked over time and report on how effective the Outcomes Framework is in improving the outcomes of our youngest citizens.
The Outcomes Framework must have a focus on priority population groups; and on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. It should also facilitate a cooperative, whole of government approach by state and local government agencies or services.
In developing the Outcomes Framework, the Council must engage children and young people, their parents, carers and families.
