Family Referral Services (FRS) are intended to assist children, young people, and families who do not meet the statutory threshold for child protection intervention, but would benefit from accessing specific services to address current problems, prevent escalation, and foster a protective and nurturing environment. FRS are intended to link vulnerable children, young people in need of assistance, and their families, with the most appropriate available support services in their local areas.

FRS can assist you in accessing relevant support services depending on the situation.

Services including, but not limited to: 

  • Domestic violence support services (including counselling)
  • Housing or accommodation services
  • Financial assistance
  • Counselling and mediation
  • Parenting struggles and support services (including parenting programs)
  • Mental Health support services
  • Culturally appropriate support services

There are many services that you might need and we can help you find them.

OUR job is to assist you to navigate the service system.
