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.

Strategic Plan

Our plan is designed to stretch and strengthen our collective efforts to achieve outcomes that matter for children, young people, their families and Queensland.


Nothing is more important than the safety and wellbeing of Queensland’s children. That’s why our strategic vision, “every child is loved, respected and has their rights upheld,” puts children and their best interests at the centre of all decision-making.

The Queensland Family and Child Commission 2022 – 2026 strategic plan leverages new ways of working through strong stakeholder collaboration and co-design, while continuing to support our independent systemic oversight function.

Our strategic plan:

  • ensures we meet our purpose of ‘influencing change that improves the safety and wellbeing of Queensland’s children and their families’
  • defines our direction over a 4-year horizon
  • prioritises children, young people and their families across our objectives
  • makes explicit commitments to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families and advancing the rights of children.
