Save the date – Thursday 26 September 2019

The Department for Child Protection is exploring options for the provision of short-term residential care for vulnerable children and young people. This may include the establishment of a provider panel to provide individualised, immediate placements for children and young people when no other appropriate option is available.

We’d love for you to save the afternoon of Thursday 26 September 2019 in the event that we can share information on potential procurement options regarding Placement and Support Packages (PaSP).

Please register via Eventbrite to register your interest to attend either in person or via web.

You can also read more about improving residential care options.
