The Queensland Government’s Department of Communities has a division which handles child safety. Child abuse manifests in many different ways and Departmental staff cannot always intervene to protect children.
The department decided to make a public online form available to help remedy this. The online form is available to anyone in the community and should be used to report when a child is in immediate danger or a life-threatening situation. You can find more information here at the Department of Communities website.
I have been contracting with the Department for some time now and I was directly involved in the development of the online forms. After many meetings and late nights, the project has been released and I hope that it makes a different to some people’s lives.
