Families and Children Tasmania

Peak Body for Child and Family Wellbeing

Families and Children Tasmania (FACT) is the key peak body in the state focusing on the wellbeing of families with children in Tasmania, including children and families at risk, and children in out of home care.

As a member of the Tasmanian Peaks Network, we represent non-government providers and work closely with the Tasmanian Government on key issues that include out of home care, housing, health, education, safety, justice, transport, employment and social inclusion.

FACT can assist you with the identification of appropriate service providers across the state, facilitate introductions, provide advocacy and input to policy development.
