Best Interests Framework - Information for Child Protection Workers

For Vulnerable Children and Youth

At the heart of the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (CYFA) is a unifying set of 'Best Interests principles' that require family services, child protection and placement services to protect children from harm, protect their rights and promote their development in culturally, age and gender appropriate ways. The Best Interests framework for vulnerable children and youth has been developed to support a consistent understanding of these principles and their practice ramifications.
