We are seeking input from individuals and organisations on a number of key questions.

You may wish to comment on all of the questions, or only those that are of interest to you. You do not have to respond to every question, except questions 2 and 6. We welcome the use of examples and real data, but please make sure no identifying information is included. Please indicate when making your submission if you want your feedback to remain confidential. Submissions not marked as confidential may be published in full or quoted in public documents. Please note that even submissions marked as confidential may be required to be disclosed by us where we are required by law or court order.

If you submit a response, the information provided will be used to inform the review, you will not receive an individual response to the items you addressed in your submission.

The review will be seeking feedback on the residential care system and submissions should not be used to make allegations of child abuse or child related misconduct. If you suspect that a child may be in immediate danger you should report child abuse.

If you have a complaint about an experience in residential care please visit the Department of Child Safety, Seniors and Disability Services’ website for more information.
