Our work

Family Worx

Family Worx brings together our experience in the delivery of evidence-based programs (FFT-CW and SafeCare) and evidence informed practice (Common Elements).

OzChild is delivering, in partnership with the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing, a Family Preservation and Reunification service across Melbourne and within the Goulburn region. 

The program, called Family Worx, brings together our experience in the delivery of evidence-based programs (FFT-CW and SafeCare) and evidence-informed practice (Common Elements). 

The Family Worx model is based on two stages – An initial intensive phase followed by a sustainable period: 

  1. Carried out by the Family Preservation and Reunification (FPR) practitioner. Low caseloads working intensively with families 
  1. Based on individual families’ needs, they can access SafeCare and FFT-CW with the aim of promoting ongoing sustainability in the second phase. 

Family Worx is defined by the flexibility to respond to the needs of families; it is culturally safe and responsive. It uses evidence-informed interventions and is focussed on outcomes, namely the preservation of families and supporting parents so that reunification can occur.
