Last week a we met with Minister Pru Goward to discuss the TEI Reform. Together with FAMS, Youth Action and NCOSS we expressed our views about the the reform process. The meeting was held in an open and amicable spirit and we appreciated Minister Goward's commitment to work with us collaboratively into the future.
We are delighted to see that FACS recognises the essential role that Neighbourhood Centres and Community Builders funded services play in strengthening communities to address child and family issues with a whole-of-community approach. FACS is committed to negotiating with every existing service provider, in the first instance, to determine where they fit within the newly designed TEI service system in each district.
Please contact us if you have any questions. We will keep you informed of any further developments.
