ChildStory is an information technology system that will place each child supported by the child protection system at the centre of their story with a network of family, carers, caseworkers and other service providers around them.

We’ve worked directly with the people who work closely with these children to understand what it really takes to work with them. We’re using this knowledge to build a new IT system to help protect children at risk.

Find out more about the child’s journey and how it will be improved through each component of ChildStory.


ChildStory will be implemented for the Casework Community including the FACS Child Protection Helpline in October–November 2017.  E-reporting for mandatory reporters will also become functional through the Reporter Community at this time.

In May 2018, YOU and the ChildStory Caring Community will become interactive for children and young people and their families and carers and our Partner Community will become active for non-government child protection service providers, police, and the health and education sectors.
