CQID Family Wellbeing Service had some positive outcomes for families associated with their service thanks to the quality of work implemented within the team.
Two families have recently had children returned to their care thanks to the in home, consistent support offered by workers Darlene Roberts and Emma Lennox.
Darlene supported her client through persevering in establishing a trusting and honest relationship with her client to allow her to implement Triple P in the home, advocate effectively for them at departmental meetings and referring and supporting the family to address some of their therapeutic needs. The family had their 2 children returned to their care 2 months ago and their youngest child just completed transition home.
Emma supported a mother who self-referred to our service and whose children are in long term care. The mother at the time was due to give birth in 3 months. Mother’s engagement with the service was positive due to her relationship with FWBO Emma and Emma’s ability to be honest with the client around her issues and vice versa. The newborn child was able to stay at home due to the intensive support offered by FWBO Emma up to 15hrs per week. As the mother progressed her levels of support were reduced. Mother and baby are no longer underneath Child Safety under an IPA and mother is seeking legal advice to have the LTG orders revoked to STG orders. FWB are also assisting in facilitating an additional contact between the children and mother in order to implement Triple P.
