Family Inclusion in Australia

There are Family Inclusion Networks (FINs) in WA, Victoria, Queensland (Brisbane), North Queensland (Townsville) and New South Wales. There is also an organisation called Family Inclusion Network Australia or FINA which represents the state based organisations.

Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter is affiliated with FINA through our partnership with FIN NSW. 

FINWA and FIN Sth East Qld are the only family inclusion networks to receive funding from a state government. They provide a range of services including advocacy and support to parents and family who are at risk of child removal or have had children removed.
