Our Stories 

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.
