Local adoption policy developed

9 October 2017
New care allowances policy and procedures have been developed for foster care, kinship care, permanent care and special needs local adoption.

In order to provide clear guidance to department staff and the sector on current care allowance policy and procedures, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has developed a Care allowances policy and procedures: Foster care, kinship care, permanent care and special needs local adoption document.

Registered users of Funded Agency Channel (FAC) can access the policy and associated forms and templates via Finance Support for home-based carers, under the Resources section of My Agency (the secure part of FAC).
