2020 Carer Survey Report

From September to December 2020, a total of 1139 carers in Queensland completed our carer survey which seeks to understand carers’ experiences from both data related feedback and comments from carers. The data related feedback helps to develop a clear visual picture from the carer community and the comments provide carers with an opportunity to expand on the data informed feedback.. 

QFKC would like to thank every carer who has contributed by way of completing the 2020 Carer Survey; these reports provide invaluable insight into the system and help the system to continue to reflect on what is working well and where our challenges lie.

Financial Survey Report

The Crime and Misconduct Commission made 110 recommendations as part of their extensive review into the Child Protection system in 2003, two of these recommendations related to reimbursement to carers for the cost of care as follows:

Recommendation 7.32

That Foster carers receive appropriate remuneration to cover the actual costs of caring for a child, as well as receiving additional payments to attend training as required and pay the associated costs of child care and transport for such training

Recommendation 7.34

That the allocation of any additional payments (eg child-related expenses, high support needs allowance) be on a needs basis, rather than on regional resource allocations....
