'Protecting Children is Everyone's Business: National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2009-2020' is the first long-term national approach to protect the safety and wellbeing of Australia's children, emphasising early intervention and prevention. The National Framework is supported by three-year action plans that identify specific actions, responsibilities and timeframes for implementation. This annual report reviews the third year of operation of the National Framework, from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012, and describes progress on each of the priority indicators and supporting outcomes. These address issues of child protection, child abuse prevention, out of home care, research and evidence gaps, service delivery, and Indigenous families.
