Approved care organisations

An approved care organisation may be eligible to receive Family Tax Benefit for young people in their care.

You can apply to be approved to receive Family Tax Benefit for young people in your care if your organisation:

  • provides or co-ordinates residential care services to young Australians, and
  • has financial statements to support this assessment

Read more about approved care organisations on the Department of Social Services website. If you would like to claim approved care organisation status please contact us on 136 150.

As an approved care organisation you must complete the Approved care organisation - Admission, transfer or discharge of a young person form when a young person is admitted, transferred or discharged from your care.

This information does not apply if you are an approved child care service for Child Care Benefit purposes.
