Advice and Referral Line

Strong Families, Safe Kids Advice & Referral Line is the first point of contact for child wellbeing and safety.

With a coordinated network of government and non-government support – and your help – we can deliver earlier intervention and better outcomes for at-risk children and their families.

In Hobart these services are supported by Baptcare and Mission Australia.

Who this service is for

Everyone with a concern about the safety and wellbeing of a child: Mandatory Reporters, concerned relatives, friends or neighbours.

Parents and children can also call to ask for help for themselves.

How this service is delivered

  • Call or visit us online

    We’ll talk to you about the situation, answer your questions, give you information or advice, and if needed arrange a referral to a service which can best meet the needs of the child.

    You can also make an online notification about abuse or neglect to Child Protection Services at our website.
