Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection definition and standards seek:
- to achieve consistency within the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection sector
- provide a framework to support children, families, communities and organisations to ensure their children are safe in culture and not in care
- preserve the intent of community control as a concept and core mechanism for self-determination
- provide a clear, standardised definition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community control and community controlled services, operating in a contemporary child and family wellbeing context.
