We are looking for input on components of the proposed Bill that focuses on early intervention and prevention for the development and wellbeing of children, young people and their families in South Australia. 

The proposed Bill would establish to a new piece of legislation to highlight the importance of expanding opportunities for government and non-government sectors to work together and improve early intervention services for South Australian children and young people, their families and the broader community.

This would complement existing child protection legislation introduced following the release of the Child Protection Systems Royal Commission report, The life they deserve

Your input can influence the decision

We want to hear your thoughts on the fundamental components of the proposed Bill to make sure that it puts sufficient emphasis on early intervention and prevention to promote the health, development and wellbeing of children and young people, their families and communities across South Australia.

To make it easier for you to contribute, a series of questions have been prepared. These questions are fairly general in nature and don't require any legal understanding.

Your feedback will be considered when the drafting the final Bill.
