Family Services

The aim of Family Services is to promote the safety, stability and development of children, young people and their families, and to build capacity and resilience for children, families and communities.

Utilising a Strength Based case management approach, the Family Services worker will work with vulnerable families where the child/children’s development may be affected by the experience of risk factors and/or cumulative harm. The worker will support families who are at risk of concerns escalating and becoming involved with Child Protection if problems are not addressed. The intention is to provide services to the target group earlier, to protect children and young people and improve family functioning.
