Good Childhood Initiatives
|The Berry Street Childhood Institute believes all children should have a good childhood. But our main concern is to ensure a better childhood for children and young people who are vulnerable because of poverty, abuse, neglect, family violence and/or homelessness. |
|There are many different ways of assisting vulnerable children to have a good childhood and the Berry Street Childhood Institute is committed to using insights from practice and research to achieve the very best outcomes for vulnerable children. |
In the first instance, the Berry Street Childhood Institute will focus on sharing knowledge from initiatives linked to Berry Street’s services and practice. We have identified a number of areas of good and emerging practice which we are documenting and evaluating. Alongside the learning from our own work, we highlight the initiatives of our partners and collaborators and provide links to the research and thinking that is influencing the direction of Berry Street’s practice.
Berry Street was first established on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders, past and present, and to all the traditional custodians of land throughout Australia.
