Non-government organisations work in partnership with Child Safety Services to deliver services or programs to children, young people and families throughout Queensland.
These partnerships are facilitated through departmental initiatives such as the Child Protection Partnership Forum, quality assurance framework, licensing of care services and funding.
Forum is a place for government and non-government agencies to engage and work together using the collective knowledge and resources of members to support innovative problem solving and develop strategies to address complex issues relating to the safety and well being of children and their families.
We have developed a quality assurance (QA) framework for government and non-government services that outlines standards for the licensing of non-government services.
In 2008-2009, Child Safety Services’ has allocated $142.9 million grant funding to 83 non-government organisations. These organisations provide approximately 279 services or programs across Queensland, to meet the needs of children and young people subject to statutory intervention and their families and carers.
