Partners in reform


Caring for children and keeping them safe is a shared responsibility.

Government, non-government agencies and communities are working together to build an integrated child and family support system that will deliver efficient, effective and sustainable support to Queensland children, young people, families and communities.

Non-government organisations and community groups are represented on the key advisory bodies, steering committees and governance groups established to oversee the implementation of the child and family reforms.

These arrangements recognise and value the commitment and dedication of our non-government partners across the state to making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and their families. They also deliver on the Commission of Inquiry’s recommendations regarding non-government representation within the reform program's governance structure.

In addition to these formal governance arrangements, government agencies involved in the reforms have established internal working groups, reference groups and other governance structures to facilitate greater collaboration and integration of reforms within their agency. These groups may interact with the formal governance committees from time to time.

Engagement strategy

Stakeholder engagement is critical to the success of the child and family reform program. Hearing the experiences, knowledge and opinions of our diverse group of stakeholders will help us deliver meaningful, lasting changes that will benefit Queensland children and families.

As well as collaborating with key reform partners through the governance arrangements, we have developed a strategy to  engage with our stakeholders to ensure their views and needs are at the centre of the new child and family support system.

In late 2015, we consulted with the public and stakeholders on a draft engagement strategy about implementing the child and family reform program. Your feedback (PDF, 1.4 MB) feedback (RTF, 199 KB) informed the final engagement strategy.
