Children’s Contact Services – Methodology to select locations for additional services

Closed 16 Nov 2021

Opened 26 Oct 2021


We currently fund 64 Children's Contact Services (CCS) across Australia for families who are unable to safely manage arrangements for the contact and changeover of their children. In the May 2021 Budget, the Australian Government announced that it would increase funding for CCS, including funding to establish 20 additional CCS across Australia.

We have developed a methodology to estimate demand for new CCS by Statistical Level Area Level 4 (SA4). We are seeking feedback on the draft methodology, which is outlined in the consultation paper (linked below), through this targeted survey.

All responses are anonymous and will not be published or distributed to other respondents.
