Youth Family and Community Connections (YFCC)

Integrated Family Support Service (IFSS) - North West

IFSS works collaboratively to provide intervention strategies tailored to families with high and complex needs. IFSS works with families where there are at risk factors present for children, young people and their families, with the aim to minimise involvement with Child Safety Services.

IFSS provides prevention and early intervention strategies and services which promote children’s and young person’s wellbeing and safety by reducing and preventing child abuse and neglect. The Service promotes strong, functional and well-supported families by building child, family and community capacity and resilience.
