Our vision

The Supporting Families Changing Futures reform program is focused on delivering the right services at the right time to support families and keep children safely at home. By implementing the reforms, our vision is that:

Queensland children and young people are cared for, protected, safe and able to reach their full potential. Queensland families and communities are empowered to become stronger, more capable, more resilient and are supported by a child and family support system that understands and respects the importance of family, community, and culture.

We are working in partnership with peak bodies, services providers and communities to deliver the best outcomes for all Queensland children and their families.
