In 2015, the Australian Centre for Child Protection was funded by the Child Protection Systems Royal Commission to conduct a review of the implementation of recommendations made by previous independent child protection inquiries that have been conducted in South Australia. To date, four independent child protection inquiries have been undertaken in South Australia. These are:

· Layton, R. (2003). “Our best investment: A state plan to protect and advance the interests of children” (referred to as the ‘Layton Review’)

· Mullighan, E. P. (2008a). “Children in state care commission of inquiry: Allegations of sexual abuse and death from criminal conduct ” (referred to as the ‘CISC Inquiry’)

· Mullighan, E. P. (2008b). “Children on Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yanjunytjatjara (APY) Lands commission of inquiry: A report into sexual abuse” (referred to as the ‘APY Lands Inquiry’)

· Debelle, B. M. (2013). “Independent Education Inquiry” (referred to as the ‘Debelle Inquiry’)

The purpose of this report is to:

· identify any patterns in the implementation of the recommendations made in the final reports of the four South Australian inquiries listed above;

· consider the intent behind each recommendation;

· determine the Government’s publically available response as to whether a recommendation was accepted and its current implementation status;

· identify any recommendations which are not supported by evidence now available; and

· provide a brief outline of the implementation status of each recommendation.
