More than ever, families in our community are under pressure.  Reconnecting after time apart can be difficult.

Our Reunification Service helps families strengthen their relationships and improve the well being of children, young people and parents and to assist families to adjust to the changes required for the return of the child to the home.  A co-ordinated response is required for issues of children in the Out of Home Care system, and we work together with families to ensure the safe and timely return home for children.

Services provided in this program include home visits, counseling, supported contact between parents and children, parenting and skill development, communication building and conflict resolution.  Our team also refers families to other communication programs if they are needed.
