Due to COVID-19, the Queensland Government's annual Kids in Care Gift Donation Drive gift donation drive will not be proceeding this year.

Many foster and kinship care services run their own Christmas appeals for children in care. For details of your nearest foster and kinship care service, please visit oneplace.

Communities across Queensland have responded to the advice from the health authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and we are well positioned for a recovery.

Queensland has a roadmap outlining the step-by-step approach for easing restrictions.

The health and wellbeing of our staff, children and young people, women and families remains our top priority.

We continue to work closely with our portfolio peak bodies and service providers on the best ways to deliver essential services during Queensland's COVID-19 recovery phase.
