PeakCare and the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak (QATSICPP) are pleased to release the next three reports on our survey findings about the Liberal National Party’s proposals for overhauling Queensland’s child protection system:
- On the proposal for random compulsory drug tests for people on Intervention with Parental Agreements (IPAs)
- On the proposal that positive drug tests will require parents to participate in a drug rehabilitation service, and
- On the proposal that a second positive drug test will lead to children being placed in foster care under a no-second chances model
Due to the relationship between the subject matter of each report, they are best read and considered in conjunction with each other.
As you will read:
- one proposal drew a relevantly high level of agreement
- one proposal drew a much lower level of agreement, and
- the third was somewhere in-between.
