Implementing the reforms

The Queensland Government and non-government sectors - including peak bodies, service providers and communities - are working in partnership to plan, design and deliver a range of reforms that will collectively build a new child protection and family support system for Queensland.

These reforms implement the 121 recommendations in the Queensland Child Protection Commission of Inquiry's final report, released in 2013.

The reform agenda also includes actions and initiatives to further enhance outcomes for Queensland children, families and communities.

These actions and initiatives are primarily aimed at:

  • addressing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander over-representation
  • strengthening our focus on prevention and early intervention
  • supporting and building on domestic and family violence reform.

The key priorities for the reform program from 2019 to 2023, including new actions and initiatives, are outlined in Supporting Families Changing Futures 2019-2023 - The Queensland Government's plan for helping Queensland children, young people, parents and families experiencing vulnerability.
