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 study on child protection judgement and decision making

Researchers at the University of Queensland are seeking participants for research aimed at increasing our understanding of the process of judgement and decision making in child protection cases. The study aims to gather views on the factors that are important and prioritised in determining risk of harm to children.

We would like to invite child protection practitioners to participate, including practitioners from different disciplines (e.g. family support workers, case workers). Participation will involve anonymously completing an online survey of 30 minutes in length on average.

Contact Carla Newcombe, principal researcher, on 0417 225 177 or carla.newcombe@uqconnect.edu.au with any questions or concerns.
