Inspire – Outreach Program

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Silky Oaks’ Inspire – Outreach Program is funded by the Queensland Government Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women (the Department) to provide outreach and group support services to children and families. Referral to the program must be made from the Department, and can support any client or family subject to a child protection intervention or order.

The Inspire – Outreach Program works within a therapeutic outreach model, which aims to support young people (0-17 years of age) and their family by offering wrap around support.

The program consists of a team of experienced Therapeutic Support Workers skilled at engaging young people in a therapeutic relationship, in order to achieve positive outcomes. The team engage young people in activities to support increased community connection, development of identity, developing emotional, social and life skills.

The program is outcome focused and flexible, working in collaboration with key stakeholders, to ensure it meets each individual young person’s needs and case plan goals. As such we operate from an ‘Outcomes-Focused’ framework, which is guided by the Queensland Out-of-Home Care outcomes for young people:

  • Safe & Nurtured – Cared for and living in a stable environment
  • Connected – Sense of identity, belonging, connection to culture, family and social networks
  • Achieving – Learning and developing to full potential
