Intervention with parental agreement

Intervention with parental agreement is a type of intervention, that allows child safety officers to work with parents of children and young people, who are in need of protection while they remain safely in the family home for all, or most of the intervention period. 

Intervention with parental agreement cases are only used when it has been assessed that a child or young person’s parents are able and willing to work with our department to meet their safety, belonging and wellbeing needs and that it is likely the parents will be able to meet these needs by the end of the intervention.

This type of intervention does not require a court order and is used to prevent children and young people from further entering the child protection system.
