Welcome to Thrive house

About us...

Thrive House is a person-centered organisation offering therapeutic services throughout all of Queensland. We are Child Safety and NDIS licensed and strive to make a difference in the lives of everyone whom we support.  We deliver services through the provision of qualified, experienced staff who are committed and passionate about what we offer as a provider. We aim to provide homes not houses and to be the service that makes a difference, no matter how small that difference may be.

Since 2017 we have been developing and learning along with the children, young people and adults we serve. We strongly believe that while everyone is different we all deserve the same opportunities in life.

The Thrive House Mission Tree


What is our Hope and
Healing Framework?

The Hope and Healing Framework aims to improve the quality of residential or non-family-based care provided to children and young people across Queensland. The framework provides residential care staff with a new way of working with children and young people who require trauma-related therapeutic support.

The aim is to revitalise the placement service system so that it is flexible and responds to the individual needs of children and young people, including their placement needs as well as medical, educational, and therapeutic requirements.

Our framework is structured around five domains for achieving life outcomes for children and young people:
Safety and nurturing
Staying connected
Achieving our goals
prioritising health
Instilling resilience
