The Target Earlier Intervention - Department of Communities and Justice 

The Target Population for the TEI Program is children, young people, families and communities within NSW who are experiencing or at risk of vulnerability.

 

The vision for the TEI is:  

  • Families, children and young people’s needs are met early to prevent the escalation of vulnerability

  • Families are able to access support early in the lives of their children and young people

  • Risk factors that lead to child abuse, neglect, and domestic and family violence are addressed early

  • Aboriginal children, young people, families and communities have access to timely, effective, accessible and culturally safe support and services

  • Recognise the significance of culture and identity in safety for Aboriginal children and young people in their family and broader communities

  • Support parents to meet the physical and material needs of their children

  • Support parents to meet the emotional needs and development of their children through warm and nurturing interactions and encouragement

  • Assist young people to stay connected with their family and make positive life choices as they move into adulthood

  • Actively engage with children, families and communities experiencing vulnerabilities, working with them to provide the services they need. This may involve coordinating service provision across the sector

  • Help communities to support and protect their members, through building stronger social connections and networks
