TAIHS.. More than
a health service.
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:
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).
“Yamani Meta” is our early childhood space at 16 Peel Street. Each week there are activities and programs specifically focussed on growing up smart, healthy kids. Each day of the week has a different topic Nutrition; Early Learning; Safety and Security; Responsive Caregiving and Health. Yamani Meta is open 9:00 - 4:00 and community members are welcome to come in and talk with Family Wellbeing staff or lean more about what is happening in the space for the week.
