What is the journey?
The journey began after the review of the Queensland child protection system in 2012. The review delivered recommendations to build a better child and family support system and charted a 10 year roadmap to deliver these improvements.
How did the journey start?
The Queensland Child Protection Commission (the Commission) of Inquiry was set up to review the Queensland child protection system and chart a 10 year roadmap to better the system.
The final report, Taking Responsibility: A Roadmap for Queensland Child Protection, was given to the Queensland Government to consider the Commission’s 121 recommendations. The government accepted 115 recommendations and gave in-principle support to 6.
Queensland Government started working on the recommendations.
QFCC is playing our part in making Queensland’s child and family support system the best it can be. To find out more visit the QFCC-responsible recommendations page.
