Earlier Intervention and Family Support Services

The Building Safe and Strong Families: Earlier Intervention and Family Support Strategy was launched by the Minister on 28 September 2016 and outlines our continued focus to safely reduce the need for children to enter out of home care. This need is particularly critical for Aboriginal children, families and communities in WA.

The Earlier Intervention and Family Support Strategy will be procuring services that support:

1. A culturally appropriate service system

2. Diverting families from the child protection system

3. Preventing children entering out-of-home care.

Consultations Workshops include:
