VACCA Child FIRST: An Intake, Assessment and Referral Service for Aboriginal children and families in the North and West Region.
In the North and West region of Melbourne, Child FIRST services are currently delivered for Aboriginal families through mainstream CSOs who operate Child FIRST. VACCA proposes that they are in a strong position to deliver the Child FIRST service to Aboriginal families in the North and West region of Melbourne due to VACCA’s principles of :
- self determination
- Aboriginal services for Aboriginal people, and
- self management of Aboriginal services.
VACCA’s Child FIRST will be a single entry point for Aboriginal children and families who need family support. Core functions of VACCA’s Child FIRST will be initial screening and assessment, provision of advice and information, referral and service coordination or intake into the relevant VACCA program
