Kids in Focus supports parents/carers who are misusing alcohol and/or other drugs (AOD). In addition to a range of child-focused interventions, the service works to increase parenting capacity, build healthy relationships between parents and their children, and provide safe family environments.

The KIF team works intensively with families in the early stages and reduces support as the parents develop and sustain their ability to parent effectively. There is capacity for parents to leave and re-enter the program depending on their involvement with other services, including AOD services.

Collaboration with other services, in particular those that provide specialist AOD support, is crucial. Therefore KIF provides a wrap-around case management service where appropriate for families.
