SIX NEW QUEENSLAND FAMILY LAW SERVICE PROVIDERS ANNOUNCED

Attorney-General/Minister for Social Services – Joint Media Release

The Government has announced the results of an open competitive selection process to deliver six family law services in South East Queensland from 1 January 2015.

This includes families with complex needs, such as those with family violence issues.

The successful service providers are:

  • Family Relationship Centre Ipswich – Relationships Australia Queensland
  • Children’s Contact Service Ipswich – Relationships Australia Queensland
  • Children’s Contact Service Logan – UnitingCare Community
  • Children’s Contact Service Gold Coast – Relationships Australia Queensland
  • Post Separation Cooperative Parenting Gold Coast – Centacare
  • Post Separation Cooperative Parenting Sunshine Coast – UnitingCare Community
