Centre of excellence

QATSICPP was established as the peak body representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child protection organisations in Queensland in February 2009. But our story began long before then. Throughout the 1970’s members of our community banded together across the state to respond to the concerns that vulnerable children and families needed support and that too many children were being taken from their families. From there, these groups have continued to formalise, advocate and demand better outcomes for our children. Today QATSICPP stands as a respected voice in the eyes of our sector and government partners, representing over thirty community-controlled organisations. You can find out more about our history and achievements below.
