Welcome to July 2020 edition of the QATSICPP newsletter. This year has brought about many unexpected and significant challenges both for the child protection sector and for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. In the current COVID-19 environment, it would be understandable to forget that 2020 commenced with large parts of Australia ravaged by bushfires. The scope of these were so great, they attracted support internationally with firefighting crews from across the world flying in to support our local fireies on the ground. It seems a distant memory now, paling in comparison with the current global pandemic altering how we work, live and connect with each other.
