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.

The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services (DCCSDS) publishes a wide range of data on their website and through COMSIS and the Queensland Government’s Open Data website. The Queensland Government has developed a survey to evaluate how useful, complete and accessible the data are.

The survey focuses on two databases. The first is COMSIS, the Community Services Information System statistical database, which aims to identify and rank the high priority groups-locations across Queensland using a combination of measures of disadvantage, need and risk (DNR). The second is the Open Data website which includes frontline service delivery data relating to child safety and family services; disability and community care services; funding for people with a disability; adoption services; non-government grants and funding; services for seniors, youth and women, and Community Recovery.

The survey takes about five minutes to complete and you can choose to remain anonymous. It’s an opportunity to get to know COMSIS and the Open Data website (if you don’t already) and to input to the design of better data services that can be used to support your work at a local, regional or statewide level.
