Wuchopperen’s Child Wellbeing service is based at the Manoora and Atherton facilities and works with the Department of Communities Child Safety Services in matters involving Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children.
Child Wellbeing services are available in Cairns, Innisfail and the Atherton Tablelands in collaboration with the Child Safety Service Centres in each area.
CAFAKCS recruits and supports Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander carers to provide placements for Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander children requiring out of home care in accordance with the
Aboriginal Child Placement Principle.
