The South Australian Child Protection Systems Royal Commission Report, The life they deserve, was released in early August 2016. The report is presented in two volumes. The first volume sets out what the Royal Commission did to examine the adequacy of current laws and policies to protect children and young people, system deficits and 260 recommendations addressing a wide range of structural, system and practice aspects across the SA government and service system. The second volume contains 5 case studies that examine the operation of the system and practice quality in specific areas. Four focus on the individual circumstances of young children, intervening in high risk families, leaving care, and children with complex needs in out of home care.

Child Protection Week 2013 Events across Queensland encourage all to play a part in ensuring that Child Protection is Everybody’s business

Over one hundred events and activities around the state during Queensland Child Protection Week (QCPW) 1-7 September 2013 will highlight the part parents, carers and the community can play in protecting children and young people.
Queensland Child Protection Week 2013 is staging a state-wide calendar of events in metropolitan and regional Queensland.  This extensive program of community events is focused on the protection of children and young people from abuse and neglect.  
Local organisations will facilitate events that:

  • Promote the theme Protecting Children is Everybody’s Business- Play your Part;
  • Provide community members with an opportunity for ongoing involvement in helping prevent abuse and neglect; and
  • Link participants to the broad range of information, resources, services already available through government and non-government organisations.

The community events include children’s activities, information sessions, barbeque breakfasts and family fun days.
Regional events to assist regions in engaging with their communities on a wide scale to promote child protection will also be a highlight of Queensland Child Protection Week.  The Queensland Child Protection Week Committee assists to facilitate regional events across Queensland.  Regional event planning committees are required to be made up of a minimum of 5 community groups/organisations and support groups to work collaboratively as a planning group.
The six regions identified are:
·         Far North Queensland
·         North Queensland
·         Central Queensland
·         North Coast
·         South East
·         South West
Arts Events are a relatively new program of QCPW, developed in 2011.  The aim of the grant is to support youth arts based organisations to hold events which support the aims and objectives of Queensland Child Protection Week.
