Over 1,000 Voices – Residential care staff survey launched

Over 1,000 Voices – Residential care staff survey, the largest survey of residential care staff yet to be undertaken in Queensland, was launched on 9 March 2017. The survey is being undertaken as an important element of developing the professional development strategies needed to support implementation of Hope and Healing, the endorsed framework for residential care of Queensland children and young people.

The survey will provide an ESSENTIAL picture of the qualifications and learning needs of residential care workers in relation to trauma-informed practice. As detailed in information sent to all residential care providers 9 March, we need over 1,000 staff to complete the survey to make the results significant and guarantee its credibility in commanding the attention of service providers, our government service partners and other key audiences. If the voices of residential care staff and their employing organisations are to be heard, they must speak up!

The survey will remain open until 31 March. Any queries about the information sent to residential care providers yesterday can be directed to Pam Spall. PeakCare is confident that, with the assistance of residential care providers, our target of 1,000 voices will be exceeded.
