This week, Queensland’s focus has been placed on two matters – poverty and the housing crisis – both of which are wreaking havoc across our State. Often interlinked, both are major drivers of children, young people and families being drawn into involvement with statutory child protection and/or youth justice systems and the reasons why exiting these systems can become incredibly difficult.
