Implementing the reforms

From 2013, the Queensland Government and non-government sectors — including peak bodies, service providers and communities — have worked in partnership to plan, design and deliver reforms that collectively built 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.

More information on how the recommendations have been implemented is available on the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs website.

The first 5 years of the 10-year child and family reform program focused on designing and building a responsive and flexible family support and child protection system that provides the right services at the right time to help families, children and young people when they need support.

In 2019, the government released a whole-of-government strategy (PDF) whole-of-government strategy (DOCX, 8.2 MB) for the final stage of the 10-year child and family reform program.
