The Children and Families of Offenders Steering Committee (CFOSC) aims to achieve better outcomes for children and families of offenders by addressing in a timely manner issues and concerns that have been raised by staff, families, and friends. To do this effectively, the CFOSC draws support from all sections of Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) which are directly involved in service delivery to visitors in correctional centres.
The CFOSC meets every two months and is chaired by the Assistant Commissioner, Strategic Policy and Planning with representatives from SHINE for Kids and the Community Restorative Centre.
