Policy advocacy

The Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) uses evidence and networks to influence legislation and policy concerning the wellbeing of Queensland children and young people, and their families. The QFCC advocates for evidence-based, collaborative and strategic approaches to addressing issues affecting the wellbeing of Queensland’s children, their families and the community. 

We collect data, undertake research and engage with various stakeholders, children and families to form positions and make recommendations about laws, policies, practices and services related to the safety and wellbeing of children, young people and families.

We do this to improve the child protection, family support and youth justice systems to make sure they are the best they can possibly be to protect vulnerable children and families.
