Practice Principles

Focus on the wellbeing of children
and young people:

We prioritise the rights, needs and wellbeing of children and young people.

Ecological approach:

We consider the interaction of the personal, social, cultural, economic and policy contexts that impact on individuals and families.

Evidence and experience:

Our practice is evidence-informed and inclusive of the wisdom
of both the people we work with and our team. We carefully measure our performance to improve practice.


We build and maintain respectful, trusting and caring relationships.

Participation and contribution:

We create opportunities for individuals and families to be actively involved in decisions that affect their lives. We encourage people to participate in community life and to contribute to the wellbeing of others.

Collective Impact:

We use a structured and inclusive approach that brings the community together to focus on a common agenda to address complex social problems.

Strengths and solutions:

Our work encourages people and communities to build on their strengths and focus on solutions.
