Family Law Services: Children's Contact Service - Melbourne Inner

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a targeted competitive process to apply to deliver a Children’s Contact Service (CCS) in Melbourne Inner Statistical Area Level 4 as part of the Family Relationships Services Program (FRSP) from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024. Funding will be offered to one organisation as a result of this process.

The objectives of CCS are to provide a child-centred model of intervention that assists children of separated parents to establish and maintain a relationship with their other parent and family members, and to help achieve sustained and workable long term arrangements.

The intended outcome of this grant opportunity is to provide a safe, reliable and neutral place to assist parents with the changeover of children. It will also provide supervised visits to assist separated parents to manage contact arrangements, especially where there are concerns about safety. The CCS must ensure that the best interests of the child are kept at the centre of the contact process.
