Our Service Areas

How Are We Different?

Our services equip and empower children, young people, adults, communities and systems to:

Respond To Deeper Needs

Understand and intentionally respond (rather than react) to the deeper needs (e.g., growth, trauma, developmental, identity) driving wellbeing and whole-of-life outcomes.

Personalised Growth Solutions

Design and implement intentionally delivered wellbeing, mental health and growth solutions that are personalised to the needs and context of individual and/or community.

Embrace & Disentangle Complexity

Embrace human diversity and complexity, including the multiple factors impacting on life outcomes, and to provide tools and methods that disentangle this complexity.

Integrate Science with Wisdom

Bring together the science of wellbeing, resilience, growth and trauma-responsive practice with the local wisdom and strengths of community members.

Partner and Co-Design

Partner and work side-by-side with others to develop "shared understandings" and plans to deliver local wellbeing, growth or mental health solutions.

Build Sustainable Local Capacity

Implement methods, tools and processes to sustainably grow the capacity of their community, and empower the community to empower themselves.

Therapeutic Residential Care

Therapeutic Residential Care

Bernie Noonan, Program Manager, Uniting Country SA

Therapeutic Foster Care

Therapeutic Foster Care

Jodie Sawley, Senior Practitioner, Centacare

"Our social work and support team have been empowered to grow both foster carers and children side-by-side. Our roles are moving from 'support' to 'coaching' roles, where we can make a real difference in the lives of children and the dedicated carers who are there to support them."

Disengaged Young People

Disengaged Young People

Jason Harding, Senior Case Manager, Relationships Australia

"Resilient IMPACT has provided us the tools and method to grow key self-awareness and skills in young people to cope with the demands of life, to engage with education and set goals for their future. The content really cuts through. You can really see that it is making a difference".
