oneplace launched on 16 November 2015 as an easily accessible directory of community services to help Queensland families to get to the right service at the right time.
From mums and bubs groups to domestic and family violence support services, oneplace will be the go-to resource for children, families, community members and professionals looking to find local support provided by government and non-government organisations in Queensland.
There are more than 46,000 records listed in oneplace and this is growing every day.
oneplace will highlight all the information people will need to know about a particular service - the distance from their current location to a service, the cost of a service, any eligibility requirements and transport options. The best part is that oneplace is easy to use, with searches done using the simple terms we use every day.
Those working in the child protection and family support sector are encouraged to use and promote oneplace to children, families, community members and professionals, as well as any other community services you notice are not currently listed.
The directory can now be accessed via oneplace.org.au. Further functionality will be released in stages in 2016.
oneplace is a collaboration between the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC) and the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services and was recommendation 6.1 of the Child Protection Commission of Inquiry Report.
InfoXchange was commissioned to build the directory in 2015.
