The Department of Family and Youth Services was established through the amalgamation of the Department of Children's Services, Youth Department, Ethnic Affairs Department, Family Services Department, the Queensland Recreation Council, and the Disabled Persons Service. These were consolidated into a single organisational and administrative structure as part of the introduction of a regionalised model of service delivery.

The department was divided into broad service areas covering youth services, ethnic affairs, senior citizens, relief assistance and disability services. As well as providing services within these areas, the department also operated various grant and subsidy schemes for community organisations working in the same areas.

Minister for Family Services, Youth and Ethnic Affairs 9 Jun 1987 - 14 Dec 1987

The Department of Family and Youth Services was abolished on 14 December 1987 with a further re-organisation of ministerial responsibilities. Ethnic Affairs was amalgamated with the former Department of Community Services while Youth Services and the Queensland Recreation Council were moved to the Education Department. The renamed Department of Family Services then gained the area of Intellectual Handicap Services from the Health Department.
