Family by Family
= "supports families across Australia to help each other thrive. It is a peer-to-peer program that draws on the experience and resilience within communities".
"The Family by Family model is the result of one of TACSI’s first projects. We were given a brief by the South Australian Government to help reduce the number of families needing crisis services, and to help keep more kids out of the child protection system. Over a period of 12 months, we worked with families to co-design a new program that would enable them to make the changes they wanted to make in their own lives.
Family by Family supports families across Australia to help each other thrive. It is a peer-to-peer program that draws on the experience and resilience within communities – we find and train families who have been through tough times, match them with families who want things to change, and coach the families to grow and change together.
Family by Family is now operational in three sites in Adelaide, and have expanded to Mt Druitt in western Sydney." (http://tacsi.org.au/project/family-by-family/)
