Child Protection


 Safe and Supported sets out how all governments, Aboriginal and Torres Strait leaders and the non government sector will work together to help children, young people and families in need of support     


                                                 Safe and Supported first action Plan 

This resource is intended to support organisations engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to implement the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations in a culturally-safe way.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle recognises the importance of connections to family, community, culture and country. It guides our legislation, policy, and practice.


The Charter sets out the rights of parents involved in child protection matters. The paramount concern for child protection in Queensland is the safety, belonging, wellbeing and cultural needs of children and young people as per the Child Protection Act 1999.



In Queensland the Human Rights Act 2019 protects these rights when you come in contact with the government or use their services – including the police, public hospitals, and public schools
