Diagram: Home-Based Intensive Family Services

The diagram shows the relationship between different intensive family service groups, and a brief description of who receives the services. There are five family service groups in all.

Four groups are funded by the Department of Human Services. These are:

  • Child and Family Assessment and Referral Networks (which provides services to families where infants are at risk, including infants as yet unborn)
  • Strong Start (which provides services for young parents where infants are at risk, including infants as yet unborn)
  • Family Practitioners (who provide services for families with children up to six years)
  • the Child Wellbeing Program (which provides services to families with children of school age).

One final group is funded by Non-Government Organisations and  Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations. This group provides services to families with children of any age.
