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.
