Targeted Early Intervention Program

Together is a wonderful place to be… but sometimes, families struggle to maintain togetherness. At times of such struggle, whether families are going through major life crises or just not getting along, the Early Intervention Family Support Service helps families and individuals keep things together – including many who are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Through this FACS-funded community project, we provide:

  • Support, information and advice to clients on emotional, financial, recreational, health, housing and other social welfare matters, and evaluate and coordinate the services of welfare and community service agencies
  • Early intervention with careful assessments which helps to determine needs, find out vulnerabilities such as family issues, mental health situations and especially if anyone is at risk of harm
  • Assistance to clients referred by other agencies or doctors via networking and identifications during soft entry such as during the social gatherings
  • Assistance in writing support letters, phone advocacy, form filling (mainly Centrelink, community housing and any other applications)
  • EAPA (gas & electricity), emergency relief and PAS (water) assistance to clients who experience financial hardship due to any unforeseen circumstances
  • Assessment of clients’ needs and planning, developing and implementing educational, training and support programs
  • Interviewing of clients and assessing the nature and extent of difficulties
  • Monitoring and reporting on the progress of clients
  • Referring clients to agencies that can provide additional help
  • Assessing community need and resources for health, welfare, housing, employment, training and other facilities and services
  • Liaising with community groups, welfare agencies, government bodies and private businesses about community issues and promoting awareness of community resources and services
  • Supporting families and providing education and care
  • Help with preparing submissions for funding and resources, and reports to government bodies and other agencies
