Families and Children Tasmania (FACT) focus 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.

On behalf of our members, we advocate for all children and their families in Tasmania, including the 600+ children and young persons facinghomelessness in Tasmania, and the 1000+ children that reside in out of home care.
