Advocacy

Adopt Change advocates to give voice to the vulnerable children in our society, who deserve to grow up in a safe, nurturing and permanent family home. We also speak up for those who dedicate so much of their life to supporting their children and are met with many challenges.

Adopt Change advocates for child-centred legislative policy and reform at Federal and State levels. Legislative and systemic reform is one of the key avenues for creating a system that meets the needs of vulnerable children. We promote this reform and highlight the risks faced by vulnerable children by:  

  • Meeting with politicians, policy makers, advisors and government representatives   
  • Responding to calls for advice and input from Federal and State governments 
  • Providing access to information sessions and education for child welfare professionals and the community     
  • Speaking with media on topics relating to permanency, adoption, impermanency and a child’s rights to trauma informed supports     
  • Raising awareness through campaigns
  • Conducting research to contribute to the understanding of issues for children including the importance of permanency; the impact of trauma and impermanency; and the supports necessary for a child to thrive
