The tip-off line can be used by parents, providers or their employees to raise concerns about practices relating to the administration of subsidies.

Concerns relating to the quality or safety of a service should be raised with the relevant state or territory authority (above) but if you are not sure where to raise your concern, the tip-off line can help.
