Measuring Progress under the National Framework: Evaluation of Progress under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children

An evaluation report of the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009‑2020 (the National Framework).
The evaluation measures the progress of activity under the National Framework’s First and Second Three-Year Action Plans.
The National Framework was endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments in April 2009 and is an ambitious, long-term approach to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of Australia’s children. The National Framework aims to deliver a substantial and sustained reduction in levels of child abuse and neglect over time. The key findings of this evaluation were considered in the development of the National Framework’s Third Action Plan.
