Engaging Wyndham Families

About this service

The Engaging Wyndham Families workers are able to provide short term case manage with parents/ caregivers to support the best interests of their children and family concerns who reside in the Wyndham Municipality. An example of this may be

  • early school disengagement
  • family needs
  • cultural support
  • linkages to community supports and services
  • advocacy and liaison with further services in the community
The Engaging Wyndham Families program are available for referrals, these can be made to each of the alliance members through their programs. Clients need to be aware of the referral and provide consent for a referral to be assessed. If families are currently involved with Child Protection, referrals cannot be accepted. Please feel free to contact one of our alliance members to discuss your potential referral and to establish eligibility to our program.
