Ongoing intervention

Ongoing intervention occurs when we need to provide support and assistance to a child or young person and their family to meet their protection and care needs.

  • Case planning

    Case plans are developed to address the protection and care of children or young people involved in ongoing intervention.

  • Support service case

    A support service case refers to providing, or helping provide preventative and support services to families.

  • Intervention with parental agreement

    Intervention with parental agreement allows child safety officers to work intensively with children, young people and their families to meet their protection and care needs while they remain in the family home for all, or most of the intervention period.

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

    We are committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people safe within their own families and communities wherever possible. Find out how we do this.

  • Child Protection Order

    If it has been assessed that a child or young person has been harmed or is at risk of harm and requires protection, we will remain involved with the family for a period of time.

  • Family group meetings

    A family group meeting is held by our department to develop a case plan when we believe that a child or young person is in need of protection.

  • Court processes

    When a child or young person is assessed as being in need of protection, and a parent is not able and willing to protect them, an application will be made to the Childrens Court for a Court Assessment Order or a Child Protection Order.

  • Parents and families of children in care with a disability
