(2) To set-up the service in a timely way, the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support (OCYFS) temporarily employed four people in January 2012 to establish the Youth Support and Transition Team.
The revised Child, Youth and Family Services Program (CYFSP) which funds community organisations to provide services to vulnerable and in need children, young people and their families commenced on 1 March 2012.
Work and consultation is underway to ensure the Youth Support and Transition Team service model fills gaps and complements rather than duplicates existing services. These issues are being taken into consideration in finalising the model.
(3) An evaluation framework is being established and outcomes will be reported on annually, as part of Community Services Directorate Annual Report. The Team has sought advice on the service delivery model and evaluation framework from Associate Professor Philip Mendes, Department of Social Work, Faculty of Medicine at Monash University. The Team Leader is shortly travelling to Bendigo, Victoria to visit a similar service being delivered by St Luke's Anglicare, which is considered best practice in Australia, to further refine the service delivery model and evaluation framework.
(4) The Case Conference Team still exists within Care and Protection Services. The Case Conference Team now focuses on early intervention such as emergency actions, voluntary care agreements and pre-natal support. The staff numbers remain the same. Transition from care conferences have been transferred to the Youth Support and Transition Team to manage.
Land Development Agency—sales (Question No 2319)
Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Economic Development, upon notice, on 3 May 2012:
(1) In relation to residential land sales by the Land Development Agency (LDA), what was the (a) average and (b) median price of residential land sold by the LDA for the years (i) 2008-09, (ii) 2009-10 and (iii) 2010-11.
(2) How many blocks of residential land were sold and exchanged with the LDA for the years (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10 and (c) 2010-11.
(3) How many blocks of residential land were sold by the LDA to first home buyers for the years (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10 and (c) 2010-11.
Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The information provided below relates only to single residential blocks. The LDA also sold a number of multi-unit and englobo sites during this period, however, given the variances in size and development capacity, providing mean and median data for these sales would not be meaningful.
