Provides information and referrals to assist strengthening families and dealing with relationship difficulties. Where families separate, the FRC provides information, intake and assessment, education programs and family dispute resolution (mediation) with qualified practitioners to help them reach agreement on parenting matters without going to court. This agreement occurs in the form of a parenting plan. The FRC strives to provide culturally appropriate service.
Family Dispute Resolution (mediation) is offered on children’s issues. The process consists of Intake and Assessment, Group Child Focus session (individual or telephone assessment) and mediation which is booked for 3 hours. We offer FDR (mediation) outreach services to Gladstone, Emerald, Biloela, Yeppoon, Blackwater and Mount Morgan by appointment. We can offer telephone FDR (mediation) where necessary.
The first three hours of service (Intake & Assessment, Child Focus session and first hour of FDR) are free. The second and third hour of the mediation sessions are charged at $30 per hour per person. If clients return for further mediation sessions they are charged on a sliding scale. Exemptions apply - please check with your practitioner.
Parenting Order Program on behalf of the Family Relationship Centre in Central Queensland including all of the outreach regions.
