More about the Royal Commission into the South Australian child protection system

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.

Each year, over 500 young people leave the Queensland child protection system to live independently. Help and support for these young people often comes from family, carers and community members, as well as government and non-government service providers. However, a number of young people make this transition without the support of a family network.

Transition to Independence Month or T2I Month is held in November each year with a focus on helping young people make the journey from the child protection system to independence and achieve positive life outcomes.

This year’s theme is ‘All aboard for the next step…navigating post care’. The key message is that good T2I planning requires all organisations and professionals to be on board in supporting young people to transition successfully.

There are many different ways you can celebrate T2I month; from staff training days to fun events for young people.

Transition to Independence Month is coordinated by G-Force, a sector-wide working party made up of government and nongovernment organisations.
