Family Intervention & Preservation

  • Preventative Intervention for Families in Crisis

  • Family Restoration & Healthy Attachments

  • Family Reunification & Transition Planning

  • Foster & Kinship Placement support

  • Positive Behaviour Support

The Nurtured Seeds program drives the theory, that all parents are able to make the positive change, that their interaction and engagement is crucial to the well-being of their child and without their investment, change is not possible.

This approach is strengths-based and encourages self-help, empowerment, and investment in the process. The program seeks to teach and mentor rather than support and hold.

A focus is placed on the key strategies for change to occur, embracing the concept of self- awareness and empowerment in developing the skills for calmer and mindful parenting. Parents are mentored, upskilled and educated around what can be achieved by them as a parent in order to keep their child safe or provide a safer environment.

Intervention and Preservation is adaptable to the need of the family in supporting reunification, placement stabilisation, transition planning and implementation as well as Foster and Kinship support.

Keeva House

Flourish Mum’s and Baby program provides a safe environment in which vulnerable Mothers and their babies can be supported in those early precious days together. Providing a high level of quality round the clock care, our multidisciplinary team of professional practitioner’s support Mum’s with the essential care and skills needed to safely care for their children and build healthy attachment.

Adopting a community care approach, Mums who enter the program have access to Social Workers, Health Practitioners, Counsellors, and Doulas. Each Mum is provided a case plan and supported to move through this holistically to meet the needs of themselves and their baby. Through high quality, evidence-based practice, each Mum will be provided support and upskilling within their parental capacity to achieve departmental goals and progress with caring for their child independently.

The program has a primary focus in providing a service that meets the needs of babies born into adversity considered at risk of harm. In a bid to mitigate trauma experienced through the loss of a caregiver, Flourish will provide a multidisciplinary wrap around service that will meet their critical needs from the beginning, strengthening their attachment and Mum’s capacity to reduce risk of future harm through education and support.
