Event description

Supporting families with complex needs with child protection contact – Findings from a new ANROWS study

Tuesday 30 April 12:00-1:00pm AEST, online via MS Teams

Hosted by Family and Community Services Insights, Analysis and Research (FACSIAR) 


Families involved with child protection services often face a range of complex issues. There has long been consensus that domestic and family violence, parental mental health issues and alcohol and other drug use are strongly interconnected and increase the risk of children and young people entering out-of-home care.

In this FACSIAR Lunch and Learn Webinar, Dr Betty Luu will present findings from a new ANROWS Study (conducted at the Research Centre for Children and Families, The University of Sydney) which analyses the interconnections between issues. It is one of the first externally led research projects to use the NSW Human Services Dataset (HSDS). This extensive dataset makes it possible to see how families interact with a range of services, including police, child protection and health, over time. Following the presentation, we will have a panel of experts who will discuss how this new research can help provide evidence to inform better, earlier and more targeted services for families and children.

This webinar will be chaired by Jessica Stewart (Executive Director, FACSIAR).
