The Family and Child Connect service is delivered at a number of sites across Queensland and our site in Ipswich is operated in partnership with Mercy Community Services providing Intensive Family Support and inCommunity Inc leading the Local Level Alliance of services.
Family and Child Connect helps vulnerable families connect with services they need to safely care for their children at home. The service helps families access the help they need before problems escalate.
The service:

considers information we receive with a focus on the safety and protection of children

makes contact with the family to discuss the situation, recognizing that sometimes parents and families just need a little help

works in partnership with the family: together we identify the type and level of support that may be required for the family

can connect each family to services that may assist their situation, after getting the family’s permission.

Parents can seek support through the service to:

-develop parenting skills and managing child behaviour

-build better relationships between family members, including help with any violence at home

-improve budgeting and managing money

-manage alcohol, drug or gambling problems

-access housing, healthcare or other community or government services.

The service can also link families to more intensive support services that help families stay together.
