Child Safety Services

Meeting the health care needs of children in out-of-home care

Changes have been made to make it easier for foster and kinship carers to keep children healthy and safe.

  • Additional workshops for early childhood education professionals

    Additional workshops are now available across the state for early childhood education and care professionals to prepare them for their new role as mandatory reporters from 1 July 2017.

  • Helping with the cost of early childhood education

    The department is providing new, additional payments to foster and kinship carers to help with the cost of early childhood education and care programs.

  • Family and Child Connect to open in Mount Isa

    Family and Child Connect services will open in the Mount Isa/Gulf catchment in March 2017, giving vulnerable families access to the help they need to safely care for their children at home.

  • My Home

    My Home is a new care option that places children in the tertiary system who are unable to be returned to their families, with permanent foster carers.
