Discussion Paper

We have developed a detailed discussion paper so that people and organisations can provide their views more formally through a submission process.


The discussion paper details current activity in Tasmania, nationally and internationally that is underway to improve outcomes for children. It uses the Tasmanian Children and Youth Wellbeing Framework to arrange the discussion, and encourages feedback in response to questions relating to the domains of the Wellbeing Framework. It also covers legislation and governance, and measurement and evaluation for child and youth wellbeing.


The discussion paper also has specific questions relating to the priorities of:

  • Aboriginal child and youth wellbeing; and
  • The first 1,000 days.
