Description

This report outlines the achievements, successful collaborations, ongoing challenges and outcomes of the Generational Change Reform Program. It marks the culmination of two years delivering projects all aimed at keeping Territory families Safe, Thriving and Connected. Although many of the initiatives are implemented and have led to ongoing services, systems and programs, there remains a need to be responsive to the needs of Territory children and their families. Embedding the Generational Change Reform Program will ensure the considered, consultative and collaborative approach will continue to be delivered. It will provide a combined and focused effort and continuity for all stakeholders.

Strengthening Governance and Systems 4.4.2 Reporting and Monitoring The Northern Territory Government is continuing to make improvements to existing data in the warehouse and identify data collection solutions. It includes steps to introduce additional data collection and reporting mechanisms to improve monitoring and reporting of children and families experiencing vulnerability. Work is also continuing for datasets to be brought into the warehouse through the continued development of data management tools. This includes full compliance with national minimum datasets for juvenile justice and child protection. Over the last four years, the reform to the youth justice system has included a focussed effort to improve the collection and use of evidence on the performance of the system. Monitoring of data provides the opportunity for evaluation and improvement. Data collection and reporting mechanisms continue to be improved with additional work mapped across government agencies to ensure relevant data projects are in sync. For example, the government has launched an online data reporting form for service providers to use when reporting back to the department. Another reporting and monitoring project, The Story of Our Children and Young People was released in November 2019, and is a comprehensive outline of Territory and regional data across all areas of child and youth wellbeing. For the first time, data across almost 100 measures is presented to Northern Territory Government regional boundaries, supporting outcomes based monitoring and evaluation across the Territory. The information was also presented in regional snapshots to support local engagement and understanding. Planning for the 2021 Story is underway, which will have the additional component of an interactive online data platform.
