Assisting vulnerable children, young people and their families

Assisting vulnerable children, young people and their families

Northern Sydney now has a Family Referral Service: Intake number 1800 066 757. It operates 8am-6pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).

The role of the Family Referral Service (FRS) is to assist vulnerable children, young people and their families, who do not meet the statutory reporting threshold of risk of significant harm (ROSH) but who would benefit from accessing local support services. FRSs assess the needs of families and help link them to specific and appropriate services in the local area.

The FRS provides services to both the agencies supporting families in need, and directly to the families. They accept referrals from individuals, Government agencies such as Local Health Districts and schools, and Non Government organisations.

If you have queries for the Northern Sydney Region FRS please contact the Catholic Care Coordinator, Katie Biggs on 8425 8700.
