Placement and Support Packages (PaSP) tender briefing

Thursday 7 November 2019

The Department for Child Protection is working with service providers to explore new short-term residential care options for vulnerable children and young people.

Through the establishment of a Placement and Support Packages (PaSP) provider panel, DCP will be able to engage panellists to provide individualised, immediate short-term residential care placements for children and young people when no other appropriate option is available.

The residential care arrangements will be used when children and young people need to enter care at short notice for a period of stabilisation and for a limited time. An initiative aligned with the department’s broader reform agenda, including a commitment to reduce the number of children and young people in commercial care and place children according to their individual needs.

As a follow-on to our pre-tender briefing held 26 September 2019, DCP will be hosting the Placement and Support Packages (PaSP) tender briefing on Thursday 7 November 2019.

You can register to attend in person or via web conference via our Eventbrite registration page.
