Targeting at risk families

An evaluation of the Brimbank Family Outreach Service
Adam Tomison

Abstract

An overview is provided of an evaluation of the Brimbank Family Outreach Service conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies, in partnership with Burgell Consulting. The Brimbank Family Outreach Service was designed to provide support and advice to 'at risk' families not currently identified as abusive, to reduce the problems of at risk families in order to prevent them becoming child protection clients, and to reduce the need of such families for the provision of significant family support resources. The major design features of the evaluation are set out, the case management framework described, and overall findings are summarised. Availability details for the Evaluation report and a companion document are provided.
