About Child Health & Wellbeing

A fully functioning and effective child protection system is vital for the protection of our most vulnerable and at risk children. The potential for a fully funded and comprehensive system to contribute positively to the lives of abused and neglected children is vast; many of the negative and damaging consequences of abuse could be significantly reduced. However, it is clear that the South Australian child protection system is straining under the weight of marked increases in notifications, substantiations and demand for alternative care places. All of this in a sector experiencing difficulty in meeting the needs of the children already within the system.
