Child Protection Counselling Services

We aim to assist parents and carers to provide a family environment that is safe and nurturing for children and young people.

The Child Protection Counselling Service is a child and family service working with infants, children, young people and their families or carers when NSW Family and Community Services (FACS) have determined a child is at risk of significant harm due to violence, abuse or neglect.

The Child Protection Counselling Service provides counselling, casework, family work, advocacy, and where relevant, Court preparation and support for children and their family or carer. 


Referrals to the Child Protection Counselling Service are made by Community Services (Family and Community Services or FaCS), Joint Investigation Response Team (JIRT) or Children's Court.
