Welcome to Growing Up in Queensland 2020. This is your opportunity to step up, speak out and make your voice heard. Every two years, the Queensland Family and Child Commission asks children and young people across our state about what it’s like to grow up in Queensland. We want to know about what’s important to you, what your communities are like, and what your hopes and dreams are.”

For more information

  • We will make sure your voices are heard – we will write a report about what young Queenslanders tell us they need and what they want adults to do differently. 

  • We will investigate some of the big issues we hear about so that we can understand problems better and help find solutions. 

  • We will work with other young people and adults to take action on what young Queenslanders tell us.
