FamilyLinQ is an exciting collaboration between The Bryan Foundation and Queensland Government that was officially launched by Education Minister, The Hon. Grace Grace MP, on 13 October 13 2021.
FamilyLinQ is Queensland’s first integrated school-based hubs initiative, aiming to improve the health, education and life outcomes for children and their families within school communities.
Kingston State School has been announced as the state’s first FamilyLinQ school which is set to open in 2023. A second FamilyLinQ school site will be established at a new primary school in Logan Reserve in 2024.
Through the FamilyLinQ partnership, The Bryan Foundation will invest $10 million over 10 years, alongside a State Government investment of $19.1 million to deliver two state-of-the-art hubs.
Bringing together education, health and community services under the one roof, FamilyLinQ will play a key role in school community life and will be co-designed with a community first approach, to enable families to be the centre of school community life.
Services in each FamilyLinQ hub will include quality education and learning; early childhood support services; onsite health services; family support programs; adult education and training, and community activities and programs.
