Assessment Service Connect (ASC) is our program for supporting families who are going through a Child Safety investigation where domestic and/or family violence is one of the concerns.
Families are referred into the program by Gold Coast Child Safety Investigation and Assessment teams. ASC works directly with families, for up to 60 days, to support connection to community services which will enhance safety and wellbeing in line with the family’s identified needs.
ASC also assist Child Safety in their assessment of domestic violence risk and help Child Safety to develop responses which place survivors (adult/child) at the centre and pivots responses to the person using violence. The program is co-located in the Nerang Child Safety Service Centre Service.
