Child and youth health and wellbeing

Please be advised that The Imago Project is currently under re-design.

The recent transition to a commissioning model for all contracted services has prompted Brisbane South PHN to review both The Imago Project and the Allied Health Intervention program.

This review has led to the amalgamation of the two programs and a realignment of the service delivery model underpinning the projects, in order to deliver these crucial services to a greater number of children in the region.

The new model will provide access to development and wellbeing services that support both the childhood education workforce, parents and families, whilst improving the relationship between health and education.

Submissions from eligible organisations closed at 5pm on Thursday, 17 August 2017.

The Early Years Development Program will begin service delivery in Monday, 2 October 2017.

Please visit the Brisbane South PHN website closer to this date for more information.

If you require assistance between now and 2nd October 2017, please contact Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service via our referral page.

ImagoThe Imago Project is an early intervention initiative focused on detecting and responding to behavioural and developmental concerns in young children.

It establishes partnerships and referral pathways between early childhood education centres and healthcare providers.
