If you live in the metropolitan area of Perth and are being reunified with your children, then Centrecare has an intensive outreach service. This service may be able to help you and your children to reconnect and ensure your family is strong.

Are you:

  • looking for a reunification service that is culturally sensitive for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families;
  • home service to help you be reunified with your children;
  • separated from your children and working towards getting them back in your care;
  • feeling unsure about your relationship with your children;
  • finding it difficult to talk to your children about their time in care;
  • finding it difficult to cope with the demands of being a parent; and/or
  • in need of support while your children are being returned to your care by Department for Child Protection and Family Support?

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

Centrecare Djooraminda's Reunification Service provides intensive outreach counselling and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families whose children have been returned to their care.

A Reunification Counsellor will work with you to help you develop a strong relationship with your children and to keep them within your care. We will assist you to develop your knowledge, skills 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 two to four times per week or more often if required;
  • an intensive 12 to 16 week program;
  • assistance to deal 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 to access and deal with other agencies, if required.

Making contact
If you would like the Djooraminda Reunification Service to help, ask your Department for Child Protection and Family Support (CPFS) Case Worker to refer you to the program. Your CPFS Case Worker will talk with you and arrange a time for a Reunification Counsellor to visit you at home. You will also need to complete a Consent Form on our brochure. (link below)
