The Investment Dialogue for Australia’s Children will be supported by strong governance. Governance arrangements will focus on collaboration aimed at improving the wellbeing of children, young people, and their families, by working with communities to reduce intergenerational disadvantage in Australia.

The National Roundtable will meet one to two times per year and is supported by the Executive Group and the Investment Dialogue Implementation Group.


The Implementation Group consists of senior executive representatives from key government agencies and lead philanthropic members, along with ARACY - Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth as the Strategic Convenor.

Leadership Councils are being established in 2024 to embed community voice in the work and interact with existing and emerging governance groups. 

Working groups will also be established in 2024 to support collaboration on specific issues and opportunities, particularly those areas set out in the Working Together Agreement. Further information is available here.
