Support for children and families

  • Support for parents and families

    Raising a child is not always easy but there is support available for parents and carers.

  • Independent person

    When Child Safety is making an important decision about an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander child, the child and the child’s family have a right to have a say and to have an independent Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander entity for a child (independent person) help make sure their voice is heard.
