The Northern Rivers Community Legal Centre provides an Early Intervention service for people dealing with FACS and Care and Protection issues (Early Intervention). This service is offered out of its Lismore and Tweed Offices.
NRCLC assists parents where Family and Community Services (FaCS) have concerns about the safety of children. In these cases FaCS may require parents to do certain things and give commitments about how they will parent their children. The NRCLC solicitor can assist parents to negotiate and discuss these issues.
Where Care & Protection orders have been made by the Children’s Court, NRCLC can also help parents negotiate with FaCS about contact arrangements for the parents and their children.
