Role of Consultation at Child and Family Services Intake

A central feature of the new Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (CYFA) is the establishment of clearer pathways into child and family intake services in Victoria where there are significant concerns about the wellbeing of children.

The ability to consult is a key component of the legislation and aims to promote and support the partnership, interface and operation of Child Protection and registered community-based child and family services.

Consultation is the process by which authorised and confidential information is shared and advice is given to achieve the best possible outcome for vulnerable children, young people and their families.
