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.

On 14th July 2015, the Palaszczuk Government announced its first State Budget.  PeakCare was pleased to release a summary of the budget highlights to our Member Agencies and Supporters soon after its announcement.  Thank you for the kind emails we have received expressing appreciation for quickly sending you this information.

 
On the following evening, a paper containing additional information about the budget was sent to our Member Agencies and Supporters  with an invitation to comment on those aspects of the budget you may be pleased about as well as those that you may regard as less than pleasing.  What’s good, what’s bad, what’s missing?
 
PeakCare is very pleased that emails are already being received containing some very well-considered comments – especially about ‘what’s missing’.  You are strongly encouraged to add your comments to those that have been submitted.
 
Your response to the budget and the information contained in this paper can be emailed to  Lindsay Wegener, preferably by 24th July.   PeakCare will make use of the comments we collect to inform our ongoing dialogue with the State Government and its various departments and our representation of matters of interest and concern to our Member Agencies and Supporters.
