A Statement of Belief:
Children and young people in the child protection system remain part of their families and as such remain important stakeholders in the child protection process.
Therefore partnership with parents is fundamental regardless of difficulties such as age, gender, disability, mental health status, socio-economic status or criminal record.
Parents, life and cultural circumstances must and will be respected by all involved in the Family Inclusion Network Queensland (Townsville).
The next FIN Townsville Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday 22nd November, 2016 from 5pm at 431 Ross River Road, Cranbrook. Prior to this Peer Support will be held between 4pm and 5pm at the same venue.
