Welcome to the ChildStory blog

We believe that every child deserves to be safe and have a permanent and stable home for life.  To deliver on this promise we need an information system that is responsive to the complexity of the work of child protection, that can support decision making by recording and recalling the right information at the right time and supports collaboration between the people that matter in a child’s life.

To respond to this challenge the NSW Government has commissioned the ChildStory project within the Department of Family & Community Services. Operating within the broader framework of the Safe Home for Life reform, ChildStory represents a once in a generation opportunity to create an information technology system that places the child at the centre of their story and builds around them a network of family, carers, caseworkers and service providers that work collaboratively, with each other and the child, to keep them safe.  An opportunity to tell a child’s story.
