When Aboriginal families are in need of extra support, our casework team can provide that support. Made up of two Aboriginal Brighter Futures caseworkers and an Indigenous Parenting Support caseworker and team leader, there is the flexibility and scope to work with families in a range of situations and with diverse needs.
The NCNS model favours a combination of casework and group-work, having seen the effectiveness of the two modalities combined over many years.
The team provides home visiting, and structured intensive case planning and implementation. In addition to the casework component, the casework team utilises our range of in-house parenting workshops, and other programs to increase community and cultural connectedness, confidence and skills. The team are partners to Kooly Playgroup, and also run the Aboriginal Tutoring program, which achieves outstanding results for primary school aged Aboriginal children. This team also run the Aboriginal Carers Support group (which is a partnership with Absec). This year, our approval as a Work Development Order provider, means that through participation in counselling, or casework, clients can repay their debilitating state debts.
