This project aims to inform the further development of child centred practice that will assist children to participate in child protection practices in appropriate and meaningful ways. The research findings will inform the development of policy and practice strategies that will increase children's meaningful participation in child protection decision-making. The first stage of the research is to survey statutory child protection agency workers across all Australian state and territories. The second stage will be to interview statutory child protection workers. Ethics approval has been granted by the Australian Catholic University Human Research Committee.
