The Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs’ vision is for Queenslanders to be safe and thriving in families, communities and culture. The purpose of the Department is to support children, young people and their families to be safe and to thrive in culture and communities across three service areas. Child and Family Services aims to enable families to safely care for their children and young people, and provide services to support the safety, belonging and wellbeing of children and young people not able to be cared for by their families. Youth Justice Services aims to keep the community safe by working together to prevent offending and reduce reoffending by children and young people, and by enabling young people to reconnect to community. Multicultural Affairs Services aims to promote Queensland as a unified, harmonious and inclusive community. View the latest Budget Paper 2021-22 for further information.
