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.

Do you have experience working in direct support or advocacy roles with young adults aged 18-30 years, with mild/borderline intellectual disability, who have exited foster care or residential care?

Can you participate in an interview (approx 1-2 hours, face to face or via Skype if outside of SEQ) to share your perspectives on working with this group of young people?

Eligible service providers will have a minimum three-year degree qualification in a human service field, and a minimum 12 months experience working in a support or advocacy role in Queensland that includes work with young people in the research target group. Service providers may have worked in a range of human service contexts, not just disability or after-care services.

Interviews will contribute to a PhD study on the transition to adulthood experiences of young people with mild/borderline intellectual disability who have exited non-kinship out-of-home care.

If you are able to participate in an interview, or would like further information, contact Sarah MacDonald by April 30 2014 on 0403 949 948 or sarah.macdonald1@uqconnect.edu.au
