Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women

Supporting children for the future

We’re committed to achieving transformational change for some of Queensland’s most vulnerable children and young people.

To do this, we employ staff across a variety of child protection roles, from Child Safety Support Officers to Senior Practitioners, across Queensland.

Our Senior Team Leader Sarah is determined to make a difference to the lives of children and families in the Far North Queensland region.

“As a department, I think that our biggest goal is that children find permanency and stability in their home environment.

“The children that we're helping support and cultivate now are obviously the parents of the future, so the more support, the more stability they get here, that's going to give them the opportunities, the skills to be able to provide to their own children.”

Sarah has also worked as a Child Safety Officer across Queensland and says, while it can be tough, it is also extremely rewarding.
