e-Child Times October 2016

Welcome to the October edition of e-Child Times.

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the year, and I couldn’t possibly think about Christmas but there still a full schedule of activities and events on the calendar yet to come. Just one that I want to mention is the upcoming Forum Collaborating in Complexity that Child Australia and Collaborate for Impact are cohosting on Monday November 7th. We are pleased to have Liz Weaver Vice President and Director of the Tamarack Institute Canada with us not presenting a key note address on the 7th but presenting a Master Class on November the 8th. Child Australia has promoted the principle of multi-agency collaboration since 2012 when it held the first workshop on Collective Impact in WA. It was obvious that the fragmented service delivery system and silo thinking that has dominated government policy and sector practice for too long simply required a fundamental re-think. Child Australia is actively involved in supporting Collective Impact initiatives in WA and the NT where are services are located.
