My Life in Care Survey 2023 now open

My life in care survey_Shareable - Newsletter_692x475

The Department of Child Safety’s annual My Life in Care Survey is now open for children and young people to share their thoughts on the care system in Queensland.

The survey will ask participants their views on their experience of the care system, including their placement, how the education and health systems are supporting them, and different aspects of their life, including their family and social relationships.

This year, two online surveys will be available: one for young people aged 10–18 and a separate survey for children aged 5–9 which will be supported by Child Safety Officers, Pyjama Angels or Community Visitors during home visits.

PeakCare strongly encourages all organisations providing care to children and young people to support participation in the survey, to ensure as many voices as possible across Queensland are heard. Where young people speak, we must listen and act to improve outcomes for all children and young people in care. Eligible children and young people will receive a post card about how to access and participate in the survey.

For children under legal guardianship of carers, Child Safety requests the guardian’s consent to provide the young person the opportunity to have their say about their experience in care.

Download the flyer for young people or find out more at the My Life in Care survey site.
