What happened to submissions made to the commission?
Royal Commissioner Margaret Nyland and her team used submissions made by individuals and organisations to inform their investigation of the child protection system.
Some people were asked to give additional information, participate in a hearing, or provide sworn evidence. The Commission received 374 submissions, conducted 74 stakeholder engagements and heard from 381 witnesses including public servants, experts, non-government organisations and foster carers.
On 5 August 2016 she delivered her report to the Governor which recommended improvements to the existing laws, policies, practices and structures currently in place for children at risk of harm, abuse or neglect including those who are under the guardianship of the minister.
