Earlier today, the NSW Government released Taylor Fry’s report analysing agency data to understand and anticipate the current and future needs of children, young people and families in NSW.

There are some striking findings in the Their Futures Matter modelling, for example, we predict 7% of the people aged under 25 in NSW will account for half of the estimated $100 billion cost of the state’s social services by the time they are 40 years old.

In the report, our modelling uses data combining child protection, housing, justice, health, education, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, parental risk factors and Commonwealth government services (welfare, Medicare and PBS).

Our work will assist the NSW Stronger Communities Investment Unit – Their Futures Matter to design service solutions or enhance existing supports for the benefit of priority groups identified using the modelling. It will also be used in allocating investment to people with the highest needs.

You can read the full report here.

More information on the investment approach to thinking about government services, and how it can deliver better outcomes to people can be found here.
