The StrongFamilies approach recognises 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 is to plan and coordinate services for consenting families who have complex needs and are receiving services from two or more agencies. They bring family members and agency workers together to work in a coordinated way, share relevant information, identify goals, and develop plans to help meet the family's needs.

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