CODE 1 Protective services

Includes case plan development and management.

CODE 2 Intensive family support services

Those services that aim to prevent imminent separation of children from their primary caregivers because of child protection concerns, and those services that aim to reunify families where separation has already occurred.

CODE 3 General support services

Those services not included above that are either funded or provided by the community services department.

CODE 4 Respite care

Out-of-home care provided on a temporary basis. For example, when the parents or guardians are ill or unable to care for the child on a short term basis. This does not include emergency care provided to children who have been removed for their homes for protective reasons.

CODE 5 Advice/referral to another type of service

Any service that is not provided or funded by the community service department. This can include: mental health, education, drug and alcohol, community health, private psychologists, etc

To be completed as services are provided. It should be updated as soon as a new service is being provided to the child. However, it should only be updated once per type of service. For example, if a child’s family is provided with general family support more than once, it should only be recorded the first time the child’s family uses this support.
