Additional Child Care Subsidy (child wellbeing) Factsheet for Child Protection, CSOs and ACCOs working with children who are at risk but not subject to an Interim Accommodation Order or Protection Order

ACCS (Child Wellbeing) is a Commonwealth Government subsidy that reduces the cost of child care being a barrier to children ‘at risk’ from either entering or remaining engaged with child care.
Many parents and carers you work with may be eligible for ACCS (Child Wellbeing). This includes parents and carers caring for children who require care and protection under the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005, as well as vulnerable children who are in receipt of voluntary services or residing in informal kinship care arrangements.
