Keeping Queensland’s children safe is a job for the whole community. Protecting children is everyone’s responsibility and one of the most important jobs there is. Every single child deserves to feel safe, cared for, protected and able to reach their full potential.
That’s why the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC), peak bodies, government and non-government organisations are committed to building shared knowledge and resources across the sector.
The Protecting Children information module provides professionals and the community with the information they need to keep children more than safe.
To find out how you can help, complete the Protecting Children module and learn about:
- your role in protecting children
- having difficult conversations with children and parents
- child abuse and neglect
- how you can help a child or family you’re worried about, and
- ways to work together to protect children.
Protecting Children will strengthen your knowledge and embed a positive culture across organisations to improve outcomes for children and their families. Visit www.qfcc.qld.gov.au/child-protection-resources
Every single child deserves to feel cared for, protected, safe and able to reach their full potential.
We call this more than safe and it's important for our community.
To keep children more than safe, they rely on the people around them to pay attention, offer support and report worries when necessary.
Another way of thinking about it is that all members of our community need to be committed, connected and courageous and you're an important part of this.
Help us keep our kids more than safe, every day, in everything we do.
