StrongFamilies

 

Overview

The StrongFamilies approach recognised that sometimes families can experience complex problems that cannot be addressed by a single agency - or even many agencies if they work in isolation. Such difficulties families might encounter include:

The role of a StrongFamilies worker was to plan and coordinate services for consenting families who have complex needs and were receiving services from two or more agencies. They brought family members and agency workers together to work in a coordinated way, shared relevant information, identified goals, and developed plans to help meet the family's needs.

The StrongFamilies program was coordinated by the Department of Child Protection and Family Support.
