Family Home Visiting (FHV) has been funded by the Government as part of the "Every Chance for Every Child" initiative and provides ongoing home visits and support to eligible families over a two year period. Nurses are supported by a multidisciplinary team including social workers, psychologists, family support co-ordinators and Aboriginal health staff.
The FHV Service Outline (June 2005, CYWHS) provides a general guide to the philosophical basis, structure, eligibility criteria and content of the Family Home Visiting service.
