Child and family reform

The Queensland Government has committed to building a new child and family support system over the next 10 years that will have a greater focus on supporting families to provide a safe and secure home for their children.

Through the Supporting Families Changing Futures reform program, we aim to:

  • reduce the number of children and young people in the child protection system
  • revitalise frontline services
  • refocus on learning, improving and taking responsibility for a better child protection system.

This will require a fundamental shift in the way government agencies, child safety professionals and community organisations work with vulnerable families, and with each other.
