Early Intervention Services

This core service focuses on strengthening and building the capacity of families where the children were identified as being vulnerable or at risk of removal to alternative care.

These centres are located at hospitals where the Social Worker on site does trauma containment, to prepare victims for the forensic medical examination and the victim receives further medical treatment, psychosocial support and counselling.
