This resource is designed to help women and families deal with the government services in charge of keeping children safe. The main department with this job is called Family and Community Services, or ‘FaCS’ for short. They used to be called DoCS (Department of Community Services) but their name changed in 2011.
The booklet explains the different types of actions FaCS can take at the early stages of contact with you and your family. It’s really important to understand these actions in case FaCS presents them to you.
Home is the best place for children but safety is most important, so home has to be safe for children.
