Children and young people
QCAT takes a new look at (reviews) some decisions made by the:
- Department of Communities including Child Safety services (the department)
- Commission for Children and Young People and the Child Guardian (the commission)
The decisions which have been made about children and young people include:
- who they should live with
- not telling their parents where they are living
- the amount and type of contact between them and their parents
- other care arrangements.
or are regarding:
- people who have applied to adopt a child
- people who are not allowed to work with children because of their history
- licensing a childcare centre.
If you feel that a decision made by the department or commission about:
- a child who is a family member or a child in your care
- your situation is wrong, then you can apply to QCAT for a review of this decision.
QCAT also makes decisions prohibiting a person from entering a school or state instructional institution.
