MacKillop Family Services – South West Emergency Care for Children
South West Emergency Care for Children supports families with children up to 11 years of age within their own home when the family may be experiencing a crisis.
Crises include family sickness including hospitalisation, bereavement, or situations that place the family under stress. When parents find themselves in crisis, a Family Support Worker may come to the family’s home to care for the children.
Services may include:
• In-home child-care • Transport to school or day-care • Helping prepare meals for the children • Washing/bathing the children • Additional practical support as determined upon assessment
