Specialized Counselling/Assesment Services (SCAS)
To support families remaining together - to see children raised by their parents in a stable, caring home enviroment. The SCAS offers two programs to facilitate this goal.
Assessment and Counselling services are provided to families, with children 0 - 19, who have chronic or complex issues where the child protection risk has not been ameliorated through family preservation or other less intensive programs or single-focussed interventions. Children may be in care, with hope of reunification, or living at home.

All referrals must come in writing from a MCFD child Protection Social Worker
MCFD social workers may request a Family Assesment that explores a range of factors within a family. The purpose of the assessment is
1)to identify barriers to family stability
2) to identify strengths within the family
3) to develop stratigies/make recommendations that will assist the family to move towards their most positive potential
4)to identify accessible community resources
5) to present the process of positive change as a series of measurable steps and 6) to present this information in a manner that all can understand and implement
MCFD social workers may also request the SCAS program to provide Counselling Services. These would be provided to parents and/or parents/children/families where a clear understanding of presenting issuses already exists, where services are not readily avaliable elsewhere in the community and where this intervention will support efforts to maintain positive family relationships and unity.
Assessment and Counselling service are not provided at the same time to the same family. In some cases Intervention (counselling) may follow Assessment.
