Child, Youth and Family Engagement assists children and young people in developing their own individualised plan. Together, through one-on-one and group support, we work on building skills and confidence to achieve the things they want in their lives. Such as good relationships with family, friends and people in their school and community, engaging in meaningful work or learning and having a secure home. Groups may include a focus on self esteem, resilience, anger, goal setting and life skills.
Practical assistance is provided for the whole family to support children and young people in their mental health and wellbeing goals, including information, referral and education.
Referrals to CYFE may come through schools, social workers, child protection (where orders are NOT in place), clinical services, psychologists, GPs, and other community services, with the consent of the young person and a responsible adult. Self referrals are also accepted.
