Key Child Protection Documents

The key Child Protection documents underpinning our policy are: 

 

National Child Protection Framework

Overview: The National Framework’s focus is on stronger prevention strategies to tackle social disadvantage and promote social inclusion and wellbeing. Better collaboration within and between governments will also be a priority. Closing the gap between Indigenous children and other children will be a chief aim of the national framework.

Queensland Child Protection Act

Overview: The Child Protection Act 1999 is the primary legislation providing for the protection of children in Queensland.

U.N Convention on the Rights of the Child

Overview: The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the first legally binding international instrument to incorporate the full range of human rights—civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. In 1989, world leaders decided that children needed a special convention just for them because people under 18 years old often need special care and protection that adults do not. The leaders also wanted to make sure that the world recognized that children have human rights too. The Convention protects children's rights by setting standards in health care; education; and legal, civil and social services.
