About us

The Child Development Council is an independent body set up under South Australian legislation to monitor, advise and report on how well our youngest citizens in South Australia are faring. We are based in Adelaide.


Our purpose is to develop a consistently understood and applied framework of outcomes and indicators that monitor the health, safety and wellbeing of children and young people that all South Australian agencies and bodies impacting on children and young people in South Australia adopt.
