Families and Children

The Families and Children (FAC) Program Guidelines Overview (2017) provides overarching guidance for all programs under the FAC Activity. It provides the key starting point for parties considering whether to participate in a program and form the basis for the business relationship between DSS and the grant recipient. Through this Program, the department aims to foster collaboration and innovation in the community, freeing up resources to improve outcomes for individuals, families and communities.

Program Operational Guidelines where applicable, provide additional practical program guidance for Service Providers.

All Guidelines must be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions and the grant agreement. DSS reserves the right to amend these documents from time to time by whatever means it may determine in its absolute discretion and will provide reasonable notice of these amendments.
