Kurbingui Youth Development Association (KYDA) Family support program



The Indigenous-specific Family support program, run by Kurbingui Youth Development Association (KYDA), is targeted at resourcing and directly assisting families in practical support that results in children not having to enter the statutory system. The Family support program places an emphasis on early intervention approaches with families that are vulnerable or at risk of entering the child protection system.

KYDA aims to increase the protective factors for the child by providing parenting skills for family members, and improve attachment between the child and parent whilst building strengths within the child's family and support network.

Referrals from child safety service centres take priority over all other referrals. Self-referrals are only permissible where a family self refers after receiving a service and an episode of support has ceased with child safety.
