New partnership to help Queensland’s most vulnerable children

We are pleased to officially announce our new partnership with UQ’s Child Heath Research Centre to help develop a new treatment program for children with neurodevelopmental impairments, including fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

The innovative screening, assessment and diagnostic approach aims to enable early identification of impairments and provide appropriate support for some of Queensland’s most vulnerable children and young people.

Key Assets CEO, Rob Ryan said he was excited about the opportunity to partner with CHRC.

“The partnership with CHRC is a reflection of our commitment to investing in the community for change,” he said.

“It will allow us to utilise evidence-based research and on the ground expertise to test impact and find the best possible outcomes for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”

CHRC Research Fellow Dr Natasha Reid welcomed the new partnership.

“We are excited about our partnership with Key Assets as they are a group of people who are passionate and dedicated to improving outcomes for children and young people.

“We look forward seeing what we are going to be able to achieve together.”

The new partnership coincides with the establishment of Allied Outcomes, our new and pioneering Allied Health service.

Allied Outcomes aims to increase access to timely and affordable occupational therapy, speech therapy and psychology services for children and young people in foster care in Queensland.
