More about the Royal Commission into the South Australian child protection system

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.

A number of weeks ago, PeakCare commenced a ‘Roundtable Roadtrip’ for purposes of meeting with our members agencies and registered supporters across the State to re-cap and reflect on child protection policy and service developments that have occurred over the past few years and consider the question of where to from here. Roundtable meetings were held in Eight Mile Plains, Nerang, Ipswich and Bundaberg before the remainder of the itinerary had to be postponed, chiefly due to Cyclone Marcia.

PeakCare is pleased to be picking up where we left off and invitations have now been sent to our members and supporters about the re-scheduled dates for meetings to be held in 
North Brisbane, Rockhampton and Townsville.  Visit the events page on PeakCare’s website for more details.

Outcomes of the roundtable discussions will be important to PeakCare in planning and prioritising our work over oncoming weeks and months.  Very importantly, the information and advice given to us will be helpful in shaping our dialogue with the recently elected new government. Very pleasingly, since announcing our roundtable roadtrip, a number of government representatives have requested briefings and a report from PeakCare about the issues identified during the roundtable meetings. 

If you work for a member agency, you are strongly encouraged therefore to make sure your organisation is taking full advantage of this opportunity to send one or more representatives to a meeting so that your views and opinions can be made known and properly represented.

If you work for a non-government organisation that is not yet a PeakCare member, make sure that a membership application is quickly submitted and arrangements can then be made for your attendance at one of the meetings.
