Through system reviews, best-practice research and direct consultation with young people through platforms like Growing Up in Queensland, the QFCC is well-positioned to educate professionals and communities about what young Queenslanders need to ensure safe and happy futures. Our work aims to improve the child protection and family support system by:
Promoting the inherent values, beliefs and behaviours that make Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families strong
Improving engagement with young Queenslanders from all backgrounds to further inform decisions impacting their lives.
Actively celebrating and promoting the achievements of young Queenslanders and the contributions they make to society.
Engaging with service providers to enhance our oversight of the child and family support system and provide insight on latest research and policy.
To do this we:
Connect with young Queenslanders – by collecting, reporting and sharing their views of growing up in Queensland and by incorporating their perspectives into all that we do.
Influence the sector and engage communities – by promoting and advocating the responsibility of families and communities to protect and care for young Queenslanders and partnering with agencies, both government and non-government to create system-wide change.
Review systems and build evidence – by monitoring the effectiveness of the child protection system and evaluating the outcomes of any reforms. We also share relevant data and insights with researchers and agencies that contribute to system improvements and child death prevention activities.
