Families often require support when they are no longer involved with formal services. Preparation needs to begin as soon as families have contact with child welfare services and continue throughout their involvement. Participants will:
- Involve informal supports as identified by the family as part of the Child and Family Team
- Create a circle of support for the child and family
- Identify a person or persons to act as a liaison for the family should the family request assistance
- Maintain an open Child and Family Team that welcomes and incorporates new members
Participants will be able to support children, youth and family to successfully transition from formal services.
