They say ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and this is particularly true for children who cannot live with their own families.
Thank you to everyone who was part of the village this Christmas, and donated a gift to the Kids in Care Christmas Appeal. More than 17,000 gifts were received.
The department is grateful for the support of ABC Radio Queensland for their assistance in the 2013 appeal.
If you missed hearing some of the stories on 612 ABC about being part of the village to care for children and young people, you can listen to them again online.
