If you believe your child is in immediate danger or a life-threatening situation, call emergency services on triple zero – 000.
Under our legislation, we don’t investigate individual children’s and families’ circumstances. If you suspect a child in Queensland is experiencing harm or neglect, please contact the Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services.

Oversight Framework and Forward Work Plan

The QFCC monitors Queensland’s child safety and youth justice systems.

Our 2023–2027 Oversight Framework and 2023–24 Oversight Forward Workplan detail how we perform our oversight function with transparency and objectivity.

The framework articulates the model, principles and methodologies we apply to our systemic oversight work. The framework provides an explanation of how our approach produces objective analysis to identify changes to laws, policies, programs and services that can improve outcomes for Queensland children and their families, as required under our legislation, the Family and Child Commission Act 2014. The framework makes a strong commitment to involving the community, sector and government in assisting us to design, undertake and promote our oversight work. We recognise that achieving positive change relies on the input, attention and action of our stakeholders.

Our forward workplan outlines the areas of concern we intend to monitor and review in the coming years. We will report every six months on the progress of our workplan and will seek input and guidance from stakeholders on emerging issues that may reshape our priorities. We will update and publish our workplan every 12 months.

Release of our oversight framework and forward workplan delivers on Objective 1 of our 2022–26 Strategic Plan.
