Abstract: The Board of Inquiry was appointed by the Chief Minister in December 2009 in the wake of adverse publicity arising from a number of tragedies and public complaints about the inadequate responses of child protection services. The Inquiry was conducted during 2010 amidst the turmoil of people and systems struggling under heavy workloads while experiencing extreme pressure as they attempted to respond to constant ongoing needs and manage crises at the same time as rectifying problems and addressing recommendations identified in earlier inquiries. Nevertheless, the Northern Territory community engaged strongly with this Inquiry, with a significant number of people thoughtfully, openly, willingly and with great hope providing input to the Inquiry about a plethora of concerns they had about the Northern Territory child protection system along with suggestions about how the system could be reformed to improve outcomes for children.
