Since the completion of the first nationwide Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) data collection in 2009, communities across Queensland have been using their data to inform planning and delivery of supports, services and initiatives which aim to improve outcomes for children and families.
Queensland community stories have been developed to explore actions taken in communities that have experienced a consistent decline in developmental vulnerability over the past decade. This has presented an opportunity to identify common themes across these communities.
