About us

  • + - Who we are

    Family Inclusion Network (FIN) is a network of parents and Brisbane non-government organisations who believe the voices of families matter.

    We facilitate opportunities for parents and kin to be advocates for children and themselves on issues the affect their lives.

    Family Inclusion Network brings together government agencies and representatives, parents and extended family members to work collaboratively on policies and issues that affect families.  

    The Family Inclusion Network is an activity of Micah Projects.

    FIN is funded by the Queensland department of Communities, Child Safety and Disabilities. The Queensland government is committed to hearing insights from parents about policies which impact children and parents.
