Our Story.

RAATSICC began as a grassroots childcare program led by a group of women who wanted the best for their kids and has grown into an incorporated organisation that delivers services to a network across all of Far North Queensland.

Having home-grown workers living in these communities is the best asset to any organisation and RAATSICC builds on that belief.

RAATSICC programs have overcome huge barriers to provide genuine support through workshops, information sessions, meetings, etc, to successfully skill-up and support the community workers and their local bodies.

Devoted workers are united in the bond formed by the urge for quality care and protection of our children. Yet we have maintained our individual and cultural identity.

RAATSICC directs and oversees these programs and will continue to monitor how the needs of our communities are addresses. We will continue to maintain working relationships with government agencies to advocate on behalf of our communities.

It is through community organisations such as RAATSICC that have the grassroots perspectives on issues such as domestic and family violence and child abuse and neglect, that we can truly provide community- owned solutions.

Help us empower your community.
