We aim to inspire and influence good practice in child protection and out-of-home-care. The report illuminates the struggles and joys of working with families and what can be achieved with compassionate and courageous casework. Each page tells the real life stories of children and families and the commitment of practitioners from FACS and our non-government partners. The stories will tug at your heart strings and lift your spirits. Thank you to the FACS and NGO caseworkers who submitted stories for consideration for the 2015 edition. We were overwhelmed by the wonderful practice, capacity for families to change and the courage of the children and young people.
