Our blog series shares insights on how we can collectively problem solve and effect community and service system change to benefit children and families.
Our Centre partnered with the Department of Education and Training, and Department of Health and Human Services — with generous support from The Creswick Foundation — to present Innovate for Impact, a week-long learning program, in September 2018.
This learning program and the Innovate for Impact blog series explores different approaches and strategies to enable better and more responsive programs and systems. When we create more connected and more equitable and accessible systems and communities, we improve the lives of children and families.
