Social Impact Initiative
The Resilient Families program works with families where children are at risk of abuse and neglect. The aim is to keep children safe at home, in community and culture.
Resilient Families will support up to 300 families over five and half years. Case workers support each family in their own home to address the family's risk factors and safety concerns. As part of this, case workers provide a 24/7 on-call service.
The Benevolent Society delivers Resilient Families, on a pay-by-results contract. This means that payments to The Benevolent Society are linked to achieving results, not just for delivering services.
The Resilient Families program operates in the southern metropolitan area, through to the Murraylands.
