Supervised Family Contact Service
Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) provides a safe and positive contact service for children and their families. Supervised Family Contact is required for various reasons relevant to each family.
We recognise that a child’s contact with both parents is important for their wellbeing and development.
We understand organising contact arrangements can be stressful for those involved, and we seek to work with families and other professionals to coordinate visits in a helpful way. We facilitate family contact for Family Court matters, Family and Community Services, and for families with private agreements.
Our focus is the wellbeing and safety of the child while ensuring the child and parent are afforded a meaningful opportunity to maintain, improve or re-establish their relationship.
Contact Visits allow parents to demonstrate their relationship and parenting skills. Observation and monitoring are conducted in a supportive, positive environment allowing the parent and child to have a relaxed and enjoyable contact experience.
The location of the Contact Visit is determined by the particular needs of each family and is subject to court orders, casework, risk assessments and negotiations between the parents. Phoenix Rising For Children facilitates contact visitation at a wide variety of locations, appropriate to each family’s needs and circumstances.
A comprehensive, detailed contact report is provided for each visit. These reports are suitable for court filing and provide a timely account of the visit, including interactions between the child, parent and other attendees.
