Protecting our Children is Everyone's Business!Today we bring awareness to Queensland Child Protection Week & Bravehearts' White Balloon Day.

Protecting our children is everyone's business.

Drastic reform is required which is why the LNP will make changes to help protect our children at all costs.

Key changes under the LNP’s plan to protect kids will be:
đŸ””Overhauling the Department of Child Safety and renaming it the Child Protection Force, which will operate as a stand-alone agency, 24 hours a day.
đŸ””Adopting a hierarchy and rank structure similar to the Queensland Police Service to ensure proper oversight and accountability.
đŸ””Compulsory drug testing with no second chances to combat escalating drug addiction and to hold parents accountable for caring for their children.
đŸ””Recruiting more foster carers to work with local service centres and create more emergency care options.
đŸ””Calling in police investigators to clear backlogs and overhaul investigation procedures for high-risk cases, with a focus on monitoring kids under 5.
đŸ””Extending payments to foster carers for children in care until age 21 under a $4 million two-year trial bringing Queensland in-line with most other states.
đŸ””We'll also introduce a public child sex offender register to strengthen the safety of children in Queensland.

Congratulations to these 61 organisations that have secured $2,000 each in funding for physical activity equipment and training through the Queensland Government’s COVID SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart program.
Local sporting and active recreation clubs are part of the fabric of our community, bringing people together and delivering quality physical activity experiences at the grassroots level.
We recognise the positive contribution these organisations make to the local community and we are pleased to help them return to play post COVID-19.
I thank these organisations for their commitment during these challenging times and look forward to working together to ensure our region continues to deliver quality physical activity experiences for our community.
