Analysing information to help keep children safe and prevent future injuries and deaths

Research is very important to us. We analyse information and research generated from within the QFCC and also from outside the organisation.

We keep a register of all child deaths in Queensland and we report on this data so we can inform the community and other researchers about risk factors and prevention activities. This helps to improve the safety and wellbeing of children across the state.

Our research findings also inform policy and practice. We have a responsibility to educate the child and family support sector about research that is relevant to the wellbeing of children.

In August 2016 we will start trialing the use of the Griffith University’s online adventure game, Rumble’s Quest, which measures children’s wellbeing. We will be facilitating the trial of Rumble’s Quest in schools and family support services in the Logan area, to identify what it takes to implement this tool more broadly in schools and family support services and to identify, what value it creates for these organisations. This project is a partnership between Griffith University, the QFCC, the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, the Department of Education and Training, and the Salvation Army through the Communities For Children project in Logan.
