About us

The departments of Family and Community Services and Justice already share a common purpose across many areas of their work, particularly when it comes to improving outcomes for children and young people, Aboriginal people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people experiencing domestic and family violence, victims of sexual assault, young offenders, people at high risk of reoffending, and people experiencing homelessness.
