Why is information sharing important?

The information sharing schemes promote early identification, support and collaboration.

The information sharing schemes play a critical role in:

  • encouraging the early identification of needs or issues
  • enabling earlier support and engagement with services
  • supporting a collaborative approach across the service system
  • supporting the assessment and management of family violence risk.

The schemes also empower early childhood professionals to make informed decisions. As an early childhood professional, you can use the schemes to make a significant difference to the wellbeing and safety of children in your care as early as possible.
