The Family Information Support and Help Program (FISH)
Assistance for staff
One Tree Community Services offers support, both professionally and personally, to staff across all services.
The wellbeing of our employees is important to us and these services can be accessed through our Family Information Support and Help Program (FISH). We can assist with personal or work-related issues which may be worrying you and impact your general health or wellbeing.
However important or trivial the issue may seem to you, we can help. All discussions are private and there is no charge for this service.
Guidance for educators
We can also offer assistance to educators who are working with a child who requires additional support. This will incorporate advice and tools to support positive behaviour practises.
The FISH worker will collaborate with the educator to establish an appropriate ‘Behaviour Guidance Plan’ which will then be implemented to support the child’s individual needs. The educator will involve the family and share strategies which may be useful.
For both services, referral forms will be required. One Tree’s Family Information, Support and Help service can be accessed through phone, email or Skype.
