How does Family Services work?
A case worker is allocated to you and your family and will meet with you regularly.
Together you’ll work through the needs of your family and develop clear goals which are regularly reviewed so that things stay on track.
Appointments can be in your own home or at Kids First’s Heidelberg or Thomastown centres, or another agreed venue.
We will coordinate a care team response with any other services you are using.
Our team also runs a variety of groups throughout the year for children and parents/caregivers.
