The QFCC has partnered with the Public Service Commission to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Organisations (CCOs) to shape a sustainable child and family support system. The project aims to understand the organisational and systemic opportunities and barriers which impact on sector and workforce capability for achieving outcomes with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
The QFCC engaged with numerous stakeholders across government, peak bodies, and community groups from Rockhampton to Hopevale, Cairns, Yarrabah and Brisbane. It was a fantastic opportunity to spend time with leaders across Queensland who shared their knowledge about what is working well, and the challenges and opportunities for further growth and development.
Engagement with Far North Queensland communities marks a significant milestone for this project and the rich insights gathered from interviews are vital to delivering robust advice and evidence to government. The QFCC is now going through a process of analysing the information we have received. It is important to us that we share this information with leaders in communities and we look forward to reporting back this year.
