Integrated Family Services

It’s not always easy being a parent, and family life can be complicated. Camcare aims to strengthen and support families with resources and strategies that build safety and stability, even in the most difficult of times.

Our qualified Integrated Family Services team works together with family members to help vulnerable and at-risk children and young people by addressing parenting difficulties and other stressful issues.

Camcare - Supporting Families

Who We Help

This service is aimed at families:

  • where a child may be vulnerable or where families need some support to deal with a range of daily challenges they experience
  • with children and young people from pre birth – 18 years
  • living in Boroondara, Monash, Whitehorse or Manningham

How We Help

We come to You

Integrated Family Services Caseworkers visit families at home or in the community.

Finding a Path Forward

Our caseworker will collaborate with the family to develop clear goals, which will be regularly reviewed to ensure we all agree that support is targeted and effective, and meets the family’s needs.

Customised Plan

Each family member is treated according to their own unique needs, with an emphasis on parenting and the safety, stability, development and wellbeing of children.

Staying Positive

Parents are encouraged to use positive strategies to manage the behaviour of their children and young people.

Building Routines

We support the family in devising household routines that work for everyone.

Support Network

We link each family with the appropriate professional and community services to address a range of needs. We provide case management for families with lots of services in their lives.

How to Access Family Services

Families can be referred to Camcare by the local ChildFIRST team, a Victorian Government funded service which provides information, and links families to the services that meet their needs.
