Who we assist
The IFP service is based on the understanding that it is in the child’s best interests to remain in the care of their family, wherever this is a safe option. The IFP service aims to:
keep children in their home in a safe, stable and nurturing family environment
improve parenting capacity and family functioning
improve children’s wellbeing
prevent unnecessary placement in OOHC, provided this is consistent with the paramount concern of protecting children from significant harm.
Family must have a child under the age of 18 and there is a risk or imminent risk of removal of child.
Referrals will come direct from Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ).
