Human rights in the child protection context via videoconference – places limited so register now

This videoconference facilitated by Caron Menashe, Queensland Human Rights Commission, will offer a variety of interactive opportunities to explore the scope of the 23 human rights protected by the new Queensland Human Rights Act 2019, and to work through some specific child protection scenarios to learn how to assess the compatibility of public entities’ acts or decisions with human rights. The videoconference will be held Wednesday, 6th May, 10am to 12noon via Zoom. Forward any queries or real life situations you have encountered in work environments which impact on human rights to include in the discussion to Stephanie Fielder on 0415 161 865 or sfielder@peakcare.org.au. See this guide to developing scenarios provided by the Commission, which has some relevant examples.
