Family Services

The procedural requirements are part of a commitment between Child FIRST/Integrated Family Services and Child Protection to deliver collaborative services, with clear and consistent processes and practice standards.

The requirements:

  • establish consistent operational processes and procedures between services, including referrals and reporting, consultation, information sharing, collaborative practice approaches and the proactive resolution of differences
  • promote high level principles and mechanisms that emphasise a common approach to working together to achieve better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
