Our family services support parents to better care for and nurture their children. We deliver integrated family services through the ChildFIRST initiative which aims to ensure vulnerable families and children receive early intervention and support services before statutory involvement.
The service is available to families living in Banyule and Nillumbik who have children aged 0-17. We can also work with families during pregnancy.
The service is a voluntary community based outreach service.
Berry Street is part of the ChildFIRST partnership between nine family service agencies in the North East catchment. Referrals to the service are received via ChildFIRST which provide a centralised intake point. This allows priority allocation to any of the Family Service providers in the local government area.
