Using strengths-based frameworks as our foundation. Using dignity, respect and integrity as our practice.

Our Mission Statement

To provide the highest quality of assessments, training, services and support options for carers, parents, staff and clients across the human services sector throughout Australia.

We offer the following tailored packages and individualised services:

  • General, kinship and intensive/specialist foster care assessment
  • Training in a child protection, assessment and trauma
  • Social work supervision for students and practitioners
  • Program planning, research and evaluation
  • Consultancy and support for program development
  • Intensive family and carer support packages
