Family Wellbeing Workers (WW) support the family to identify the areas of support that may be required to promote strong connection to family; culture and to minimise the risk of children entering or re-entering the Out of Home Care System
The Family Wellbeing staff work with families to identify strengths and identify individual needs in one or more of the domains below:
- Child Wellbeing
- Cultural Identity and Connectedness
- Family Safety
- Family Interactions

Wellbeing Workers use the Queensland Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak Practice (QATSICPP) Standards as the framework for supporting families.
Support is focused on identifying families’ story-line and providing activities to assist parents and family to engage in changing story-lines that will promote optimum care and development of their children.
Supportive activities may include information, advice and referral to other services; activities at our early childhood space – Yamani Meta; and assigned Wellbeing Worker that does a variety of activities based on a family led plan for changing story-lines (this may include home visiting, support at specialist appointment, group work activities).
