Delivers trauma- informed, culturally responsive and child-focused interventions to families with children.

Under RESTORE, families receive intensive minimum six-month in-home and community-based support to address child safety concerns and ensure children and families are strong and connected.

RESTORE provides collaborative case management using a multi-disciplinary wrap around support approach.

We hear the family’s lived experience and involve them in all aspects of planning.

The service is underpinned by Aboriginal co-design criteria and privileges the voices of Aboriginal families to empower self-determination and promote the importance of culture.

Our aim is to keep children safe in their family by:

  • Partnering with families
  • Assessing risk and protective capacities
  • Establishing safety
  • Increasing parenting capacity
  • Strengthening family functioning
  • Strengthening family connections to culture, and informal and community supports
