The Centre is the peak body for child and family services in Victoria with over 150 organisations, students and individuals as members.

We provide public policy and program advice, deliver sector training, facilitate and publish research, advocate for positive reform and work with our member agencies to make sure children and families have access to the services and support they need.

The information sharing and MARAM reforms have been in response to a range of child death inquiries and the Family Violence Royal Commission.

The child and family violence information sharing reforms allow prescribed organisations and services to share information, in addition to existing information sharing permissions available to them. The reforms enable information sharing across the service system to enable more informed decisions that better respond to the needs of children, families and other people, including those experiencing family violence. MARAM guides information sharing under both information sharing schemes wherever family violence risk is suspected or present.

Collectively, the reforms are intended to create a more collaborative, integrated system to improve safety and wellbeing for all Victorian children and families including victim survivors of family violence.
