Aboriginal Child, Youth and Family Strategy

The Aboriginal Child, Youth and Family Strategy (ACYFS) is a state-wide prevention and early intervention Strategy that aims to provide Aboriginal children with the best start in life. From 2008/09, the ACYFS has placed greater emphasis on investment in the 0-5 year age range in keeping with the significant body of evidence around the importance of the early years and to align more closely with Families NSW principles and planning cycles. Aboriginal Family Workers in NNSW LHD are employed to deliver services to families in accordance with this strategy.
