Using digital technology in the child, youth and family sectors

Using digital technology in the child, youth and family sectors

Do you use digital technology in your work? Would you like to?

During May 2017 we conducted a survey to learn how professionals in the child, youth and family sectors are using digital technology in their work.

Why we conducted the survey

We wanted to identify knowledge and information gaps, and any issues, risks or missed opportunities professionals perceive regarding these technologies.

We used the term “digital technology” broadly, to include apps and social media services, and any other online services that professionals use to share information with clients or colleagues (excluding email). The focus was on if and how respondents use these services as part of their work, not about their employer’s use of technology (e.g., not an organisation’s Facebook page).

How we will use the information

The information provided will help us to develop resources to inform the use of digital technology by agencies and practitioners working with children, young people and families. To be kept informed about next steps, please subscribe to the CFCA Newsletter.

Please send any questions about the survey to cfca-exchange@aifs.gov.au.
