Shining a light on good practice tells the real stories of children, young people, families and their work with DCJ child protection practitioners.
These are stories of strength, partnership and perseverance that rarely get shared with a wider audience.
Shining a light gives these stories a platform to be shared and celebrated. For families they are a source of pride and a testament to others that lives can change. For practitioners, they are a place to model and praise the best of their work – which is tenacious, skilled and compassionate.
Each story demonstrates how the NSW Practice Framework is helping to transform child protection practice in NSW.
We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the First Nations Peoples of NSW and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future.
Informed by lessons of the past, Department of Communities and Justice is improving how we work with Aboriginal people and communities. We listen and learn from the knowledge, strength and resilience of Stolen Generations Survivors, Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal communities.
