The Queensland Family and Child Commission
The Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) works collaboratively with government and non-government partners, including families and communities themselves, to help ensure young Queenslanders grow up in safe and inclusive environments where they are valued and supported to reach their full potential.
Our role is to respect, advocate for and protect their rights, well-being and safety by driving continuous improvement of the services and systems that support them. This means we keep a pulse on the needs, hopes and dreams of our young Queenslanders and maintain a check on the child protection system so we can ensure the QFCC can successfully advocate for them for change.
To do this we:
– by collecting, reporting and sharing their views of growing up in Queensland and by incorporating their perspectives into all that we do.
– 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.
– 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.
