The Minister for Child Protection is a position in the Cabinet of Western Australia, first created in 1933 during the Second Collier Ministry.

Thirteen people have been appointed as Minister for Child Protection (or equivalent), with Leslie Logan's 11 years and 335 days during the Brand-Nalder Ministry the longest period in the position. The position and corresponding department have existed under several different names, and on several occasions been abolished entirely, with responsibility for the portfolio held by what is now the Minister for Community Services.[1]
