Department for Child Protection and Family Support – Esperance
The Department provides a range of child safety and family support services to Western Australian individuals, children and their families. Contact them for assistance to access emergency accommodation.
The Esperance office has a small team of less than ten staff and is one of the four district offices in the Goldfields District. The office provides services to children and families in an area which covers Norseman 200 km to the north and Ravensthorpe 200km to the east. The office is located in Esperance town and shares a building with the Department of Education.
The staff is made up of teams consisting of district support, intake and assessment and the ‘south team’. The ‘south team’ is a general team who undertakes assessments and reunifications, as well as managing children in permanent care and their family and foster carers. The teams work closely together and enjoy contact with children and families and working closely with the local community in a supportive team environment.
