Our department

Child Safety Services is the Queensland Government agency for child protection and adoption services. We are dedicated to protecting children and young people from harm or who are at risk of harm, and whose parents cannot provide adequate care or protection for them.

We administer the Child Protection Act 1999 and the Adoption Act 2009.

We work closely with non-government and government partners in the delivery of child protection services across Queensland.

We employ a range of people to assist us in providing child protection services, including child safety officers, senior practitioners, and other frontline community workers who have experience in working with children, families and young people.

  • Our vision

    Safe, confident children and young people who are valued by society.

  • What we do

    We respond to families in crisis across Queensland 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Where possible, we keep families together, offering counselling and support services to help families help themselves.

  • Who we work with

    We work in partnership with other Queensland Government departments, non-government organisations, and the broader community to deliver high-quality child protection services.
