The Family Preservation Program provides an intensive home-based, family-centred program to keep Koori families together and prevent out-of-home placement for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children who are at risk. The program protects Aboriginal children and young people from abuse and neglect. It also assists in the reunification of families where children and young people are currently in care and prevents their placement in substitute care. The family workers visit and assist families for three to four months, providing practical and emotional support.
