One of the services offered by YFCC is our Integrated Family Support Service (IFSS).
This is a voluntary service that offers assistance to families through parenting support, community connection, social participation, advocacy and referrals to other service providers, as needed. Our focus is to increase the wellbeing and safety of children, young people and their families and our program does this by being person-centred and goal oriented. Our aim is to support people in identifying their parenting goals and to work collaboratively to achieve them. Our YFCC IFFS team is part of an alliance who all deliver the IFSS service. Other service providers offering the program include Mission Australia, Glenhaven, Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation (CHAC), West Coast Council and Save the Children.
YFCC’s IFSS service provides outreach across the Devonport and Burnie region, meeting with people in their homes or at public places such as cafes, libraries or parks. If you or someone you know may benefit from our service, please call the Strong Families, Safe Kids Advice and Referral Line on 1800 000 123.
