Welcome to a Special Edition of e-Child Times. With so much going in the sector at the moment, it is hard to find the perfect place to start for my first “CEO” entry. I’ll start with the biggest win for children we’ve seen in a long time, and that was Minderoo Foundation’s announcement of their $75 [...]

Amongst the complex environment that is childrens services, people related issues continue to [...]
