enliven has taken the opportunity to respond to the needs of members and local partners as well as socio-economic evidence to expand our activities in supporting vulnerable children and youth. These include a greater relationship with Children and Family services through the Southern Metropolitan Child and Youth Area Partnership, Health and Development Steering Group (H&DSG).

Of particular note is enliven’s role in:

  • facilitating the development of a health service resource guide for carers of children in out of home care on behalf of the H&DSG
  • coordinating the delivery of legal education in the areas of Family Law, Child Protection and Family Violence by Victoria Legal Aid to local partners
  • establishing and facilitating a ‘round table’ for early years workers/agencies working with the Aboriginal community and Aboriginal service providers.
