The Strategy includes a Programme of Action, which sets out the policies, initiatives, programmes and plans to help achieve the vision and outcomes.

When launched in August 2019, the initial Programme of Action brought together more than 75 actions and 49 supporting actions led by 20 government agencies.  These actions were backed by around $3.5 billion in funding to improve child wellbeing in Budget 2019.  

The Programme of Action is a living document, and has since been updated to reflect progress and recent investments that support child wellbeing and poverty reduction, including Budget 2020 initiatives and those included in the Government response to COVID-19.

The Programme of Action will continue to be updated intermittently, as existing actions are progressed and new actions are developed to address gaps as well as new areas of focus.

The Government will deliver on and add to these actions over the next 1–5 years.  

The Explore Actions  page allows you to search the Programme of Action items by outcome, lead agency or current status
