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.

On the 17th February 2016, SEQ FIN will be holding a Parent Café to provide an opportunity for parents to contribute their views to the current review of the Child Protection Act 1999. FIN is hoping that through the cafes, parents will be able to share their insights into what works for vulnerable families. The cafes are an informal yet structured discussion around issues that impact families. These include:

  • What support do families need so they can look after their children and keep them safe? What gets in the way of accessing the support you and your family need?
  • What responsibilities do parents and families have to make sure their children are healthy and safe? What can get in the way of meeting these responsibilities?
  • What should happen when there is concern for the wellbeing of a child? What is the government’s role in helping to keep children safe?
  • What would be helpful when children and families go to court? Who should support families in court?
  • What obligations should Child Safety and their workers have to families and children they work with? How can Child Safety Officers work better with families?

If you work with parents who may like to be involved in the cafes, please contact Katie O’Halloran. Katie advises that FIN is especially keen to speak with parents who have accessed secondary family support services or whose family has been impacted by child safety interventions. FIN will provide lunch, childcare and transport for those who attend the café being held on 17th February 2016.  Further information about the café can be obtained from this flyer.
