Joint Investigative Response Team (JIRT)

The Joint Child Protection Response Program are a team of workers from NSW Police, Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ, formerly FaCS) and NSW Health who respond collaboratively to reports of serious child abuse.

Within Health, the JCPRP Senior Health Clinician’s role is responsible for managing the Health components of the JCPRP response in partnership with the JCPRP interagency partners.

There is a JCPRP Senior Health Clinician based at Coffs Harbour, Kempsey and Port Macquarie. Referrals to JCPRP can only be made through the Child Protection Helpline.

If you have concerns in regard to a child at risk of significant harm please contact the Helpline on 132 111.
