Aboriginal Family Preservation and Reunification Response

Home > Our Services > Children and Families > Family Support > Aboriginal Family Preservation and Reunification Response

The Aboriginal Family Preservation and Reunification Response is an intensive program delivered by VACCA that provides in-home support to Aboriginal families with children who are at risk of entering out of home care, or have entered care in the last three months.

This program aims to keep Aboriginal children with their families and reunify children who have been placed in care with their families. VACCA’s practitioners will support families to draw on their strengths, identify risks and seek the assistance they need to be safe and strong.

Get started

VACCA’s AFPR Response primarily focuses on supporting families who are currently involved with Child Protection or Community-Based Child Protection, and who have children in the following cohorts:

  • Women who are pregnant (unborn)
  • Children from birth to five years of age
  • Child and young people from 10 to 15 years of age
