Family Preservation, the Wanjana Lidj Family Preservation Program provides an intensive home-based, family centred program to keep Koori families together and prevent out-of-home placement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island children who are at risk.
The program protects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island children and young people from abuse and neglect. It also assists in the reunification of families where children and young people are currently in care and prevents their placement in substitute care. The family workers visit and assist families for 12 weeks, providing practical and emotional support.
Our preservation program accepts self-referrals from community, Child Protection, and other Professional services.
