Strategic Framework (2022+)

The Commissioner has framed her strategic agenda from 2022 onwards applying the Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People developed by South Australia’s Child Development Council.  The framework has been established to progress the vision of South Australia as a state where the conditions exist for all children and young people to thrive. This aim is organised around a Charter for Children and Young People which sets out 20 conditions that all children and young people can, and should have. The Charter applies to five key life dimensions: health, safety, wellbeing, education and citizenship. CCYP Projects are aligned with the five key life dimensions as set out below.
