The Family Partnership Model in practice in New South Wales: Working with families with complex needs to make a difference


The State of New South Wales in Australia has adopted the Family Partnership Model (FPM) developed by the Centre for Parent and Child Support in the UK as the preferred approach to child and family services. This case study shows how this approach to co-production works at a Residential Unit for families with young children provided by Karitane, an organisation providing a range of child and family services based in Carramar, Sydney.
