Free smoke alarm installation for approved carers who own their homes

All residential dwellings are currently required to have interconnected smoke alarms installed in every bedroom, in connecting hallways and on each storey. To assist with the cost of these changes, the Queensland government is offering to supply and install smoke alarms into those dwellings that are owned by eligible foster and kinship carers and are being used to provide care to children and young people in care arrangements. For carers to be eligible for this initiative, they must be an approved foster or kinship carer, provide full-time or respite care, and own their own dwelling.

Please note: the timeframe for applications to be received from eligible carers concluded on 30 September 2021.
