The Child and Youth Community Health Service (CYCHS) brings together a variety of specialist community-based healthcare services and health promotion programs to help children, young people and their families lead healthier lives.

Our multidisciplinary teams of child and youth health nurses, indigenous health workers, early intervention clinicians, allied health, doctors and  other professional staff deliver a comprehensive range of  health promotion, assessment, intervention and treatment services for children and families in Greater Brisbane metropolitan area and in other locations across Queensland.

Who we care for

We provide access to community care for almost 500,000 children in the Greater Brisbane area – that’s about 42 per cent of all children in Queensland. Services are delivered in community health centres, clinics, schools and shopping centres from Kilcoy and Bribie Island in the north, south to Beaudesert and east to the Moreton Bay Islands.

Our community-based services include:

  • Child Advocacy
  • Child Development
  • Child Health
  • School-based Youth Health Service
  • Refugee Health Assessment Centre


Our teams also reach children and families across Queensland through a number of specialist statewide services and programs. These include:

Are your child’s immunisations up to date? For the best protection, immunisations need to occur on time.
