Human rights in the child protection context – new sessions available

Did you miss out on the first free videoconference session by the Queensland Human Rights Commission on human rights in the child protection context?

Are you looking to attend a new session?

THREE new session times are now available, exploring the scope of the 23 human rights protected by the new Queensland Human Rights Act 2019.

Session 1: Wednesday, 20th May at 12.50pm – 3pm

Session 2: Thursday, 21st May at 12.50pm – 3pm

Session 3: Monday, 25th May at 10.20am – 12.30pm

The free sessions will offer interactive opportunities to work through specific child protection scenarios to learn how to assess the compatibility of public entities’ acts or decisions with human rights.

Session 3 already has a fair number of participants registered as PeakCare members were given priority access (a good reason to talk to your organisation about joining and supporting PeakCare so there are more collective voices to advocate for children and families!), so please consider the first two sessions if possible.

As these sessions have garnered a lot of interest, once registered if you find you are unable to attend, please use the registration link that will be emailed to you to cancel, or let Stephanie know, so we can re-allocate your spot.

For those who want to gain some pre-course knowledge, visit the Queensland Human Rights Commission’s Online Training Store and select the Introduction to the Human Rights Act 2019 course, which aims to raise participants’ awareness of their rights and responsibilities under the Act. It provides a basic introduction to the key elements of human rights law in Queensland, and an overview of the key legal concepts and of the functions of the Queensland Human Rights Commission.

Register to attend by emailing Stephanie (sfielder@peakcare.org.au) or for more details call 0415 161 865.
