We firmly believe that our children, young people and family services places the child and their family at the centre of all services we deliver.
On any given day we support tens of thousands of Queenslanders in so many ways. We could be providing a safe place to live for young people living in foster care, away from their natural family; offering secure accommodation to victims and their children of domestic and family violence; or offering support for separating families and the best avenues to take in such situations.
We firmly believe that our children, young people and family services place the child and their family at the centre of all services we deliver. We support children and families through early intervention, childcare, parenting support, youth services, family mediation, family and relationship counselling, crisis counselling and support, domestic and family violence services and intensive family support.
We are motivated to deliver these services as we are passionate about supporting people to have their best possible lives, improving the wellbeing of communities and pursuing a fair and just society. Our focus is, and will continue to be, how we can better service the people in our community through our services.
Our focus for families and children is to strengthen the family unit and build capacity in parents to keep their children safe and nurtured.
Our Family Law Support programs work with families to protect essential bonds between parents and their child in times of difficulty or separation.
We work together to understand the circumstances and causes of domestic violence, plan for the future and support children who are at risk of neglect or abuse due to domestic violence.
Children are the focus of our services and we work with parents, children and the community to offer nurturing, stimulating and safe environments for children whether it be in a playgroup setting, childcare centre or in the home.
We understand the basic need for every human to be nurtured and to grow with support in a family unit. Unfortunately there are times where it is not an option for children to remain with their biological family.
Providing young people with the means to live engaging lives and build resilience is key to our focus when supporting our youth.
