Family Steps is an intensive Family Intervention Service funded by Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services. We work with Forest Lake and Inala Child Safety Service Centres (CSSC).

We work with families for up to 6 months. If the family is progressing towards their goals and requires a further 6 months, a new referral may be accepted.

Ultimately, we aim to increase the protective factors for the family and child, improve relationships and parenting skills which result in the family exiting the child protection system and subsequently preventing re-entering.

We work alongside parents with children unborn to 18 years and other immediate family members in a direct caring role who are referred exclusively by Forest Lake and Inala CSSC.

Our families are those whose case plan goal or  review of a case plan goal is to:

  • Reunify with 12 months
  • Support parent/s with a child living at home under a Child Protection Order (CPO)
  • Support parent/s with a child living at home under an Intervention  with  Parental Agreement (IPA) or Support  Service Case (SSC)
