Child Safety families speak up in survey first

The Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) and Micah Projects’ Family Inclusion Network Southeast Queensland teamed up to invite parents and families to provide feedback on Queensland’s child protection system.

The Parent Voice survey asked parents and families about their experiences of Child Safety processes and about how the Charter of Rights for parents is upheld in child protection matters. They provided feedback about whether they felt recognised and respected, had decisions and information clearly explained, received effective family support, and whether their connection to culture was maintained.

These important views are critical to assessing the system’s effectiveness and identifying the improvements required to empower parents to care for their children.

This is the first survey of its kind, and the submissions provide a new and important insights and a baseline for future improvements. View the results on the QFCC website.
