Key information

  • We start planning for restoration as soon as you come into care.
  • Our first goal is always to help your family make it safe enough for you to go home.

What is restoration?

Your care team will work closely with you and your family to plan a safe return home. We also support your carer with the restoration process.

Children who are being restored normally spend more and more time with their parents until everyone is sure it’s safe enough for you to go home.

Restoration for Aboriginal children and young people is extremely important.

Aboriginal children should always be living with, or strongly connected to, their Aboriginal family. 

Your care team will check in with you to see how it’s all going.
