About this service:
Mallee Child Youth & Family Services Alliance, Mission: To provide a flexible, collaborative and innovative child and family service, through quality work relations between local services and agencies. MCYFSA Partners: -- Mallee Accommodation & Support Program -- Centacare -- Mallee Family Care -- Department of Human Services -- Murray Valley Aboriginal Corporation -- St Lukes Family Services -- Mallee Track Health & Community Services -- Mildura and District Aboriginal Services (covering Mildura & Swan Hill) The Primary aims of MCYFSA is to: -- Minimise reports and the progression of families into the child protection system -- Provide an improved service capacity for families who may not come into contact with child protection services -- Divert a proportion of families away from protective services to community services. How? MCYFSA provides a child centred, family focussed approach that centres on the needs of the family as a whole, in order to reach best outcomes for children and young people. MCYFSA is notified of a family in need by professionals or self referral via a central intake system (ChildFIRST). MCYFSA encourages families to self refer to the service, as MCYFSA believes that families themselves have the best information about their situation. The case is then allocated to the most appropriate agency. Interventions include but are not limited to: -- Assessment -- Family Counselling -- Case Management -- Family conflict resolution/Mediation -- Referral -- Short term, medium and long term intervention.
