We work in partnership with non-government organisations (NGO) and other Queensland Government departments as well as the broader community to deliver quality child protection services.

We have a strong interest in maintaining and strengthening the effectiveness of our partnerships through joint planning and local working arrangements which are critical to the provision of child protection services to children, their families and the community.
  • Report a missing child in care

    To support approved foster and kinship carers and staff in care services when responding to situations where a child in out-of-home care is missing from where they live.

  • Our community partners

    Non-government organisations work in partnership with Child Safety Services to deliver services or programs to children, young people and families throughout Queensland.

  • Our government partners

    Other government agencies have a role in the delivery of services for children and young people and their families.

  • Child Safety Licensing

    Incorporated organisations delivering placement services to children subject to statutory child protection intervention are required to be licensed. Licensing assists the department to make sure services meet the legislated Statement of Standards outlined in section 122 of the Child Protection Act 1999.

  • Funding

    The department provides grant funding to non-government organisations to deliver services to families so that children can remain at home; and that children who are unable to live safely at home are cared for in high quality out-of-home care and have access to the therapeutic and other support services they need.

  • Resources and publications
