SACOSS welcomed the opportunity to engage with the Department for Child Protection’s review of the Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 (the Act) and its Discussion Paper – Building the South Australian Child Protection System for the Future, and to contribute towards rethinking how we can collectively ensure that children and families can live their best lives.

Submission to the Legislative Council’s Select Committee inquiry into Health Services in SA

4 November 2022

The health system is a critical sector that people rely on to live healthy lives – for health care, disease prevention, and health promotion.

SACOSS believes that it is vital to the wellbeing of all South Australians – and especially those who are experiencing poverty or disadvantage – that the health system is accessible, of high quality, and responsive to their needs.

Robust public involvement opportunities that are inclusive of people with lived experience of exclusion or disadvantage are necessary to achieve this.
