CFSS practice guidance, tools and resources

A number of resources have been developed for the DHS Safer Family Services workforce and are available below for all our CFSS partners – including non-government practitioners. The resources provide practice guidance and outline effective strategies to support practitioners to work with families to strengthen family safety, wellbeing and functioning.

CFSS partners are welcome to refer to the resources, to utilise all or part of them in their own practice and to continue to provide feedback to DHS as better practices emerge to ensure we are all achieving positive outcomes for families in South Australia.
