Joint Agency Protocol for Reducing Preventable Police Callouts to Residential Care Services

PeakCare is pleased to advise that the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women has funded a short term project position to advance the work already done to produce the protocol. Over a three month period Mr Will Kerkhof will be consulting with the residential care sector and key stakeholders to bring the protocol to life in the form of practice guidelines.

Will brings experience in residential care work, leadership and project work to the table and is keen to hear from organisations and individuals who can offer information and insights to assist to develop the guidelines. Workshops will be held and it is intended that these will focus on the strategies in the protocol and the positive and practical work that is being done at a local level that is leading to reduced police callouts. If you would like to be part of this exciting work please contact Will on wkerkhof@peakcare.org.au or 0404 863 075.
