How is The Nest being used?
The Nest is being used in Logan’s long term, whole of community campaign to create the best life opportunities for every child in the region. The initiative mobilises community resources to ensure that every child gets the support, love and care they need to grow from birth through each stage of childhood, to be the best they can be.
“Our project is taking a collective impact approach to addressing child development at a whole of population level. There are a number of communities around Australia undertaking the same work, but good practice in this area is still emerging in Australia. The more we can agree standards and common ways of describing success, the better. We are using The Nest as the Australian standard for describing child wellbeing and we refer to it as an authoritative source in that regard. We are also using it as a conceptual framework within which to check that our planning and work addresses all the domains of child wellbeing.” – Matthew Cox, Director, Logan Together
