Audit of Annual Reviews 2009-10 – Report Summary

It is required by law in South Australia that there will be a review at least once in each year of the circumstances of each child under the guardianship of the Minister until the child attains 18 years of age.

The Office of the Guardian attends  and audits annual reviews to:

  • provide further external accountability on review panels
  • provide some external scrutiny of case management practice and interagency collaboration
  • advocate for quality outcomes for children and young people

We aim to attend ten per cent of reviews.  In 2009-10 we attended 201 reviews in total, conducted in 19 Families SA offices. This  represents 10.8 per cent of the reviews that should have been conducted in the year.

A full report of the audit is provided to the Minister for Families and Communities, following opportunity for comment from Families SA and a summary is published.
