Recommendation number: 
3

Support and promote for action, recommendation 5(a) of the Family Law Council interim report (June 2015), which advocates for the development of a national database of child protection and Family Court orders.

Response to recommendation: 

The South Australian Government accepts this recommendation. 

The Family Law Council’s final report, published by the Federal Attorney-General since the release of 'The Life They Deserve', reiterates its advocacy for the development of a national database for child protection and Family Court orders.

The creation of a national database has been advocated for in many states and territories – for example the establishment of a national database was also recommended by the Royal Commission into Family Violence (Victoria).

The South Australian Government supports the development of a national database of child protection and Family Court orders, as proposed by the Family Law Council, and will promote this issue for action at COAG.
