The Child Death Review Legislation Amendment Bill 2019 was introduced to Queensland Parliament on 19th September with the aim of implementing the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) recommendation of establishing a new, independent model for reviewing child death cases. The Bill proposes to: expand the requirement to conduct an internal systems review following the death or serious physical injury of a child known to Child Safety, to other relevant government agencies involved in providing services to that child; and, establishing a new, independent Child Death Review Board located within the QFCC, responsible for carrying out systems reviews following child deaths connected to the child protection system. Submissions on the Bill from the public and interested stakeholders are invited to be emailed to eesbc@parliament.qld.gov.au by midday, Tuesday 8th October. A public hearing at Parliament House on Monday, 21st October. Find out more.
