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 Child Protection Week 2014 is fast approaching. The committee, comprising 21 government and non government organisations has been busy for months in the lead up to this significant annual event.  Child protection week 2014 will run from 7th-13th September with the official launch occurring at Parliament House on September 4th.  The highlight of the launch is the Queensland Child Protection Week Awards that celebrate those across the child protection system who have demonstrated exemplary endeavours in ensuring the safety and well being of children, young people and their families.
 
Throughout Child Protection Week 2014, approximately 100 events around Queensland funded by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services will share the key messages of child protection week,  with particular note that child protection is the responsibility of all community members.  Everyone needs to be aware and play their part in protecting children and young people.  These events include specific Arts grants to highlight child protection messages in the performing and visual arts sectors; Regional grants to ensure that rural and remote areas are given additional capacity to highlight these key child protection messages; as well as multiple activity grants across the State to ensure that the messages of child protection strongly resound across Queensland. 
 
There are many exciting activities being held across Queensland during Child Protection Week 2014 that highlight the importance of  community support with regard to child and family well-being.  These events also enhace the capacity for alliances to be built across communities as well as offering various opportunities for public education about child protection whilst supporting the ability of communities to join together in highlighting the essence of strong and safe connections between children and their families.
