Child Protection Reform Engagements

The State Government is committed to a fresh start for child protection in South Australia.

The Child Protection Systems Royal Commission report The Life They Deserve was publicly released by the State Government on 8 August 2016. The report makes 260 recommendations to improve the policies, structure and culture of South Australia’s child protection system.

The implementation of some of the report’s recommendations, including establishing a new child protection department, is already underway.

There will be recommendations that the Government will implement immediately, while others will require considerable work and consultation with the community and sector.

A formal, detailed response to the Royal Commission will be presented before the end of this year, in line with the report’s final recommendation.
