Health and Well Being
We believe that every child deserves to be safe and have a permanent and stable home for life.
To deliver on this promise we need an information system that is responsive to the complexity of the work of child protection, that can support decision making by recording and recalling the right information at the right time and supports collaboration between the people that matter in a child’s life.
To respond to this challenge the NSW Government has commissioned the ChildStory project within the Department of Family Community Services.
NAPCAN (National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect)
Since then NAPCAN has made a significant contribution to the safety and wellbeing of Australia’s children and young people by raising public awareness of child abuse and neglect and its impacts, and by developing and promoting effective prevention strategies and programs.
NAPCAN is governed by a Board of Directors, and has a highly experienced team of program, policy and advocacy staff located around Australia. In addition NAPCAN has the support of an extensive network of professionals, practitioners and concerned individuals who all donate their time and expertise to support our prevention strategies.
NAPCAN is a “for purpose” organisation which has both deductible gift recipient (DGR) and public benevolent institution (PBI) status with the Australian Tax Office.
