It’s been revealed more than 70 serious youth offenders are living in Queensland’s state-run housing on suburban streets.

Workers on the ground are calling for an urgent overhaul of the system, claiming the facilities are inadequate to deal with a growing number of troubled children.

Staff are also concerned troubled children are being enticed to commit crimes due to their contact with other young offenders.

The number of children in residential care in the state has more than doubled since 2017.
