Family Counselling Services contracted to the Ministry of Children and Family Development. By MCFD referral only.
The mandate of this contract with the Ministry of Children and Family Development is to provide services to children, families or groups to assist the Director in providing support services for the safety of children and their families within the Sooke and Port Renfrew communities. The desired outcomes are that families, and at-risk children and youth will be safely supported within their community, and that families receive local services to increase capacity to safely care for their children.
These outcomes are achieved with our Family Counsellors (FC). The services that the FCs provide are:
1. Supervision, teaching and coaching of parenting knowledge, skills and ability.
2. Professional assessments of parenting capacity.
3. Assistance to families in planning for their children in a manner that develops long-term support networks within the community.
4. Supervised access between parents and designated children who are in the care of the Director.
