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.

On 26th May 2012, a full-page open letter to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Queensland was published in the Courier Mail.

Signatories to this letter included over thirty Queensland organisations and individuals who, in a combined voice, wished to commemorate National Sorry Day and convey an important message to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander citizens of our State.
 
In the words of an Aboriginal friend and colleague who sent me a text message on the 26th May, “It was awesome to see that beautiful letter in the paper this morning!”  It sure was!
 
On the eve of National Sorry Day, people gathered to present a framed copy of the open-letter letter to representatives of the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Chid Protection Peak (QATSICPP).
