on 18th August 2016

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.

Queensland Treasury is leading a project focused on reducing the reporting burden on non-government organisations within the social services sector in recognition of the cross sector and cross agency benefits that accrue to all parties from streamlining reporting requirements. This Friday, 30 October, is the deadline for any further feedback to Treasury about the Queensland Government’s reporting processes and to provide specific examples of your organisation’s good and bad experiences, new ideas that would simply reporting, and the impacts of Queensland Government requirements in the context of other regimes with which your organisation must comply (eg. Australian government). Click here to read the PeakCare’s Special Announcement about streamlined reporting

Reflecting feedback from earlier consultative processes, Treasury identified areas in which organisations want change, such as regular provision of program level performance metrics based on what individual organisations provide, consultation with service providers before considering contract changes and new measures, and reduced obligations on service providers operating across multiple regions.

The streamlined reporting project reflects the State Government’s commitment to:

  • reduce duplication and red tape thereby allowing effort to be diverted from administration to frontline services
  • gain a broader and shared understanding on the information it collects, how it is used, how it informs future policy development and how the information is shared
  • ensure the overall relevance of the data, and
  • collaborate within and across Government and the social services sector.

Non-government organisations can provide comments and specific examples by emailing SSU@treasury.qld.gov.au or by calling 0730351826. The closing date is 30 October, so you need to be quick.
