Targeted Care Packages
MOIRA delivers Targeted Care Packages which can assist young people residing in residential care to exit to a better placement option or as a prevention to entering residential care. Only children and young people subject to a statutory child protection order are eligible for a targeted care package and referral is determined by Child Protection alongside the DHHS packaging team. A targeted care package is an allocation of funding attached to a specific young person and based on an assessment of that young person’s needs. A targeted care package provides funds for one or a number of clearly articulated supports to meet the young person’s needs and is available for as long as they need (subject to review). Key workers are a core part of most targeted care packages. The key worker has a pivotal role in supporting the implementation of the targeted care package by providing case management functions consistent with the child or young person’s case plan and cultural support plan.
