This Action Research enquiry initially sought to work with the South Sudanese Community to develop a community model of community care to resolve the tensions between themselves and the Department of Communities, Child Protection and Family Support (the Department) concerning child protection. The participatory nature of the research resulted in new meaningful dialogue and new directions for both the Community and the Department. Instead of developing a model of community care, community members elected to apply to become carers, and workers in the Department and other related agencies realised they needed improved methods of communication with and listening to Community.
