Intensive Family Support (IFS) assists parents to develop parenting skills and improve family function to create a safe, nurturing environment for their children.

We focus on family preservation and reunification and offer advocacy services to those who need it.

IFS supports families to:

  • Develop the skills needed to safely care for children at home
  • Build upon family routines
  • Identify high-risk situations and develop strategies to keep the family safe
  • Address the issues that impact negatively on their children
  • Develop and expand culturally safe support networks
