From December 3rd 2018, Baptcare and Mission Australia Gateway Services transformed into the state-wide Strong Families, Safe Kids Advice & Referral Line in partnership with Child Safety Services. Call 1800 000 123.
Baptcare receives funding from the Department of Health Human Services to provide this service.
We also work in partnership with a group of family support providers to offer in-home family support and practical parenting assistance. We also work with young people who are at risk of homelessness or homeless and who are facing risk of statutory intervention.
