How do I know what to expect in care? Who can help me?
For more information about what to expect in care, you can contact one of the following organisations:
Child Safety Service Centres are located in communities throughout Queensland. Child Safety Officers work in Child Safety Service Centres. You should speak to your Child Safety Officer if you have a question about your case plan or care.
If you need to speak to Child Safety Services during the night or on a weekend, you can call the After Hours Service Centre on 1800 177 135 or (07) 3235 9999.
The Office of the Public Guardian supports and protects the rights of children and young people in care. They do this through Community Visitors who can come to see you in care to provide help and support, and through their Child Advocate who can provide support if you need to go to a court or tribunal.
