ChildStory Casework is the department’s information technology system for child protection and wellbeing. It is used by Family and Community Services staff including caseworkers, managers, Helpline staff, administrative staff, psychologists and legal officers.

Having this information available in the one place and accessible at the right time means practitioners can make informed decisions to do their jobs.
