Under the National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2009- 2020, the Third Action Plan1 one of its three underpinning strategies is focused on assisting organisations to respond better to children and young people to keep them safe. The aim of the strategy is very practical: to 'develop tools and resources to help Services to move from a "reporting" culture to a "responding" culture to improve child safety and wellbeing', as well as to 'address barriers to information sharing to allow easier information exchange within and across jurisdictions for government and non-government agencies where there are concerns about child wellbeing'.
