Lee Emerson

Abstract

The Federal Government’s Stronger Families and Communities Strategy was launched in April 2000. With its emphasis on prevention and early intervention strategies in family policy, the Strategy is a major shift from more traditional social policy. The author, from the Department of Family and Community Services, describes the context and underlying philosophy of the Strategy, and how these are translated into a new approach to funding community projects and building the evidence base in Australia
