The Child Wellbeing and Child Protection – NSW Interagency Guidelines provide information and guidance to organisations involved in the delivery of child wellbeing and child protection services in NSW. They are intended to enhance consistency and promote best practice service delivery to vulnerable children, young people, and families. The guidelines are one of the Keep Them Safe mechanisms that support collaborative practice and are applicable to both government agencies and NGOs.
Community Services led the development of the Interagency Guidelines, which were progressively updated in stages. Each chapter was developed by representatives of government human services and justice agencies and non-government organisations.
The guidelines are based on the NSW Interagency Guidelines for Child Protection Intervention 2006.
