On 5 August, 2016, Justice Margaret Nyland delivered her Royal Commission report, “The life they deserve”, to the Governor. The report contains 260 recommendations for improvements to the South Australian child protection system.
Royal Commissioner Nyland and her team examined the laws, policies, practices and structures currently in place for children at risk of harm, abuse or neglect including those who are under the guardianship of the minister.
Relationships Australia SA and The Institute of Social Relations welcomes Justice Nyland’s report and we are pleased to see recommendations about including additional Post Care support services that start before young people leave care.
