IFS is a free and confidential service available to families who have children aged 0–18 years in their care. This voluntary, supportive service is designed to build on family strengths and improve family relationships. IFS provides a lead practitioner for your family who will offer support to achieve your case plan goals.

If IFS is recommended to you by the Department of Communities, Housing and Homelessness Services, Education or Health, we will contact you to discuss whether you would like to participate. The program is completely voluntary, so you do not have to participate if you choose not to. 

If you decide to participate in IFS, we will arrange a time and place to meet that is suitable for you and your family.
