This report on a three-year study of the Social Well-Being in Mackay Schools (SWIMS) project includes a survey of the literature, a discussion of aspects of the program’s implementation and examples of new and innovative means of successful interagency collaboration in educational and child protection contexts. These examples also highlight the use of community development principles, such as capacity building for individuals to address issues, and networking and building relationships that promote confidence and trust between institutional and individual actors.
