Department for Child Protection - Blair Athol

About Department for Child Protection - Blair Athol

The Department for Child Protection (DCP) was formed in November 2016 in response to recommendations from the Child Protection Systems Royal Commission, led by the Honourable Margaret Nyland AM.

We work in partnership with vulnerable families, other government and non-government organisations, foster carers and the community to keep children and young people safe and give them the same opportunities as other young South Australians.

Where children cannot safely stay in the family home we will find a place for them to live, preferably with kin or foster care families.

We aim to give young South Australians in our long-term care every opportunity to reach their full potential.
