‘The life they deserve’, known as The Nyland Report, is the outcome of the Royal Commission into South Australia’s child protection system. Royal Commissioner Nyland states that while ‘there is no quick fix’, the report offers hope and a pragmatic look at creating a better system for the vulnerable children and young people of our community.
Among the 260 recommendations, is the need to provide further training and professional development including those working ‘across the broader child protection system’ (Nyland, 2016), a recommendation we strongly endorse and offer training to address this gap.
