Child Protection Partnerships Report

Child Protection Partnerships Reports have been prepared in accordance with section 248 of the Child Protection Act 1999. The reports purpose has been to highlight the achievements and performance across the child protection system during the financial year and present the future strategies of partnering agencies.

These reports, prepared by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Service also contain information supplied by five key government agencies to provide a comprehensive picture of child protection in Queensland:

  • Queensland Police Service
  • Department of Justice and Attorney-General
  • Queensland Health
  • Department of Education and Training
  • Department of Community Safety.

As the child protection system has matured, the method and comprehensiveness of reporting its performance data and information has improved. An extensive amount of the most up-to-date child protection performance data is regularly released to the public on Child Safety Services' Our Performance.

This has allowed the Child Protection Partnerships Report to focus on the work of all government agencies that have a role in protecting Queensland's vulnerable children and young people.

Section 248 of the Child Protection Act 1999 was repealed effective 1 July 2014; the Child Protection Partnerships Report 2012-14 is the final report to be produced under this legislated reporting arrangement.  Agencies will continue to report their highlights and achievements through existing reporting functions of the respective agencies to the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
