Youthinc and Birribi, are also able to offer multi-disciplinary, complex clinical assessments in the community, with our Outreach Team. The Outreach Team, uniquely consists of both experienced care professionals from Birribi, working alongside Youthinc clinicians. By offering a complex assessment in the home, we are able to support and strengthen the family/foster-care environment and intervene earlier to maintain placement stability.

The Outreach Team are also able to offer follow-on work to enable children and young people to experience positive moves from residential care. Transitions from residential care may be to:
Working alongside Local Authorities to better support young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
