Independent Review of the performance of the Queensland Family and Child Commission of its functions
Client: Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General
ACIL Allen was commissioned by the Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) to undertake an independent review of the performance by the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) of its functions.
The review found that the QFCC has developed strong and robust governance structures, involving stakeholders both within and outside government, including with children and young people. The QFCC has also developed and maintained a significant influence within the child protection system in Queensland, providing strong oversight of the system.
The QFCC has delivered its legislative functions effectively, including acquittal of all the recommendations from the QCPCOI for which it had responsibility.
