Somerville Community Services - Intensive Family Preservation Service


Somerville Community Services is a non-government, not-for-profit youth, family and community welfare organisation. Somerville prioritises and advocates for access to resources that will help disadvantaged Territorians to improve their circumstances and provide essential services to the community.  The Intensive Family Preservation Service provides purposeful, planned and limited intensive support to families where Territory Families has significant concern for the safety of the child and the family is at risk of having their child removed and being placed in the care of the CEO of Territory Families.  The intervention will reduce safety concerns, improve the family’s capacity to care for and protect their children from harm, which will prevent their children from being removed from the family.
