The staged roll out of Brighter Futures across NSW began in 2003, and is part of a shift in child protection policy and practice towards preventive, family-focused support and service provision. The aim of Brighter Futures is to provide targeted support to vulnerable families with young children who are at risk of being abused or neglected. The aim is to help families at an earlier stage of intervention, to stop them escalating within the child protection system. The program is being administered in partnership with 14 non-government agencies (Lead Agencies) across NSW.
