16 January 2020

This report looks into the use of intake screening and assessment tools by the family and relationship services sector.

This report has been published by Family & Relationship Services Australia (FRSA).

It presents findings from a survey of 49 organisations from the family and relationship services sector on their use of intake screening and assessment tools.

All of the participants said they use some form of screening tool on initial contact with clients to identify risk and protective factors. The tools identified such issues as domestic and family violence, mental illness, substance abuse and child abuse – highlighting how family and relationship services have a key role to play in early identification and response.
