PeakCare and the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak (QATSICPP) are pleased to release the next instalment in our survey findings about the Liberal National Party’s proposals for overhauling Queensland’s child protection system – On the proposal to increase use of adoption through a new triage model with permanency order targets.

More than any of the other LNP proposals reported on to date or soon to be reported on over oncoming days and weeks, this proposal drew widely divergent views both within and across the 13 stakeholder groups who responded to the survey. It becomes very clear when reading the report that issues concerning the use of adoption remain highly contentious.

There is one matter however where there appears to be a strong consensus of views. To find out about that matter, read the report.
