Evidence based services
As one of the largest providers of evidence based and evidence informed programs in Australia, we are dedicated to achieving real outcomes for the young people and families in our care.
Our commitment is to ensure vulnerable children, young people and their families are provided with the most effective support and interventions available. That began with seeking out the most relevant and impactful programs available and that could be confidently brought into the Australian cultural context. We intentionally look at programs backed by high quality international research, demonstrating that the intervention is effective for the intended client group.
All programs are characterised by a clearly articulated theory, comprehensive staff training manuals, model adherence measures and on-going quality assurance systems. Each of the evidence based programs have been chosen because they have been shown to consistently achieve outstanding results for vulnerable children and young people and their families.
Services in Victoria
In Victoria, we deliver three evidence based programs; SafeCare, Functional Family Therapy- Child Welfare (FFT-CW) and Treatment Foster Care Oregon (TFCO). Consistent with our vision, we established two of these programs in collaboration with Anglicare Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA).
All three programs are offered in the Southern Division of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and referrals can be made through The Orange Door or DHHS Office. Contact The Orange Door on: 1800 319 353.
