The Stronger Communities cluster brings together the former Family and Communities and Justice clusters.
The new cluster provides for the first time the opportunity to focus on prevention and early intervention into the social welfare system within the entire law and order system. This will support and drive major change in the culture on how NSW looks after its most vulnerable people.
These arrangements take a completely new approach, with empowerment and focus on much greater collaboration across the more traditional and separate family, communities and justice functions with government.
