Queensland Child Protecti​on Parent Perception Study

news
Are you a parent currently working with a Child Safety Officer (CSO) from the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services under a Child Protection Order (CPO) or Intervention with Parental Agreement (IPA)?
 
Have you ever wanted to have a say about your experience?
 
Griffith University is currently undertaking a study aimed at exploring what parents think about the quality of the child protection services offered by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services (DCCSDS).
 
Parents will be asked to complete a survey asking questions about contact they have had with their CSO. The aim of the survey is to gain perspectives from parents that will contribute to supporting improvement of child protection services. 
 
The survey should only take 10 minutes to complete and is a genuine opportunity for parents to provide feedback to DCCSDS in a confidential manner.
 
All parents who enter the survey are eligible to enter a draw for a $100 Coles-Myer voucher and will receive a newsletter that will outline all of the results.
 
Who is eligible to participate?
 
All parents who are currently involved with the DCCSDS and subject to Intervention with Parental Agreement (IPA) or a Child Protection Order (CPO) are invited to participate. Participation is voluntary and totally confidential.
 

When does it start?

The survey is now open, and responses are due by 29 February 2016.

Parents will be invited to complete the survey a second time in August 2016.
