All IFYS programs and services share an implicit belief in the following Pillars

Our Statement:

The Integrated Family and Youth Service (IFYS Ltd) aims to provide opportunities, in accepting environments, for CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE and FAMILIES to take responsibility for their own lives and to assist them to actively participate in the community of their choice.

 Our Four Pillars of Practice are:

1. Person Centred

The corner stone of the practice framework is a person centred approach. IFYS delivers a service informed by the needs, wishes and best interest of the service user.

 2. Outcome Focused

IFYS provides services that focus on strengthening the way service users’ function and opportunities to increase and build a capacity for self reliance.

3. Culturally Responsive

Culturally responsive practice values diversity, seeks to become informed and to demonstrate a commitment to cultural development.

 4. Collaborative

Collaborative practice recognises that service provision in the community sector is best undertaken within a network of government, non-government and other community supports and services.
