The Intensive Family Based Service (IFBS) is an intensive program offered by Bungree’s Children, Youth and Family Services team for eligible families on the Central Coast.
The program aims to assist families that are at risk of having their child or children removed, as well as those needing intensive intervention to facilitate reunification and the safe return of children from out of home care to their families.
The primary focus of the service is the safety, welfare and well being of the child and/or young person, in a culturally appropriate environment.
Our Intensive Family Based Service works within the principles of:
- Self-determination, participation or in decision making as per the Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998
