Who we are
We are a Support Agency
Our role is to connect eligible families to approved In Home Care Services
On 2 July 2018, the Australian Government introduced a new Child Care Subsidy (CCS). At the same time, Support Agencies were created in every State and Territory.
We are the In Home Care Support Agency (IHCSA) for Victoria and Queensland.
We support families in a number of ways including:
- Assessing eligibility for In Home Care
- Connecting families with approved In Home Care Services and Educators
- Developing referrals to other Support Agencies
- Advocating for families
While we may be new as a support agency, we have over 40+ years experience. That’s because we are part of the Family Day Care Association of Queensland (FDCAQ).
FDCAQ is a not for profit organisation that has been supporting the child care profession since 1977.
The In Home Care program is funded by the Australian Government, Department of Education and Training.
