High quality services and improved wellbeing

It is the department's role to ensure high quality services are delivered to children and young people that are meaningful to their protection needs and wellbeing.

Services are provided to children and young people in partnership with a range of agencies to focus on children's health, education and therapeutic support needs. The department also aims to provide these children with safe, stable and secure placements.

  • Whole-of-system response - Services are provided for children in partnership with a range of agencies. The whole-of-system child protection response for children in contact with the child protection system is highlighted in the annual Child Protection Queensland Performance Reports (covering 2003-04 to 2007-08) and the Child Protection Partnerships Report (2008-09 onward).
  • Office of the Public Guardian surveys - surveys formally undertaken by the Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian such as Views of Children and Young People in Care provide children and young people with a means to express their views and experiences in foster and kinship care, residential care and youth detention.
