If you live in the metropolitan area of Perth, and have children aged 0-12 years, then Centrecare Djooraminda has an intensive outreach service that may be able to support you to enhance your family’s strengths and ability to care for your children.

Are you:

  • feeling pressured to be a better parent;
  • behaviour and actions;
  • feeling alone and unheard;
  • finding it difficult to maintain a safe, stable and secure home;
  • caring for your grandchildren and finding it tough;
  • unable to find suitable adults to supervise your children appropriately;
  • allowing your children to be exposed to drinking or drug-taking; and/or
  • finding it difficult to feed and clothe your children?

If you answer “yes” to any of the above questions, then this service may be of help to you.

Centrecare Djooraminda's Family Enhancement Service (FES) is an intensive outreach support service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families who need help to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their children.

A Support Worker will work with you to help build on your strengths as a parent and develop your skills, knowledge
and confidence to be the best parent you can be. We will also help you access necessary community and government services to meet identified needs and issues.

By participating in the program you will receive:

  • home visits every week or more often if required;
  • assistance in dealing with referral issues;
  • assistance to identify and manage the changes you want to make;
  • practice in strategies to improve your ability to take care of your children; and
  • referral or help with accessing and dealing with other agencies if required.
