Services/staff:

  • Child Protection Counselling Service (CPCS) only accepts referrals directly from the Department of Family and Community Services (FaCS) as the team provides a highly specialised counselling service to families where child abuse has been confirmed. This includes physical abuse, neglect issues, emotional abuse, and children's exposure to domestic violence.
  • CPCS consists of a team of psychologists and social workers who work both at this central unit as well as Community Health Centres across Sydney South West Area Health Service. They provide counselling to children, young people, parents, carers and families already involved with the Department of Family and Community Services (FaCS).
  • We are primarily an outreach or home visiting based service and provide individual, couple, and family counselling. We also provide play therapy sessions to children. The type of session depends on family/child need.
  • Groupwork is also provided to clients of the service.
  • Our work is medium to long term in duration.
  • CPCS staff are able to provide other professionals with consultation on how to manage child protection issues.
