Shared Family Care

This Program is a foster care support service for children who are subject to departmental intervention. This program is a licensed service fully funded by the Dept of Communities, Child Safety and Disabilities Services.

In plain language Shared Family Care supports Foster and Kinship Carers who have children placed with them from the Department of Child Safety.

Sadly there are too many Queensland kids who can’t live at home because it is not safe for them to do so.  To paint a picture 9,131 children where subject to protective court orders during 2013-14.  Of those 8,631 were also placed in out-of-home care.  These are the children that we place with our foster carers.

Regional Stats:

As at 30 June 2014 there were 900 children from the North Queensland Region in out-of-home care.
