The ACT government says it is committed to protecting children and preventing domestic violence in the wake of an inquest into the death of Bradyn Dillon.
The nine-year-old boy was murdered by his father Graham Dillon in Canberra six years ago after years of horrific abuse.
Findings of a long-awaited inquest were delivered on Thursday by Coroner Margaret Hunter, who found no one could have predicted the boy's death.
In a statement released soon after the findings, ACT minister for families and community services Rachel Stephen-Smith said every child deserved to be safe in their own home.
"As a community, we share a collective responsibility for the safety of our children and young people," she said.
"Bradyn Dillon's death was a tragedy that affected the entire community and raised awareness about the importance of reporting suspected child abuse and neglect."
In the years since the boy's murder, there had been a "significant increase" in the number of reports from people concerned about a child's risk of abuse or neglect, she said.
Two additional frontline teams have been established to deal with those reports.
Since Bradyn's death, the government had also invested more money in the child protection system, she said.
Ms Stephen-Smith added that the government continued to address family violence through programs designed to get people the help and support they need.
The community services directorate was in the middle of a significant period of reform, currently responding to multiple reviews and reports and inquiries, the minister said in the statement.
She said the government would carefully review the coroner's findings and consider how they can be addressed.
The minister sympathised with Bradyn's mother and his family and friends.
She also acknowledged the difficult process that they as well as many others including child protection staff have had to endure through the inquest.
She encouraged staff to seek help if needed.
