Home & Family is delighted to be launching SafeCare in Aotearoa!

SafeCare is a brief, evidence-based, early intervention training programme for parents and caregivers of tamariki ages 0-5.

SafeCare uses a skill-based curriculum that builds on the knowledge, experience and existing strengths of a parent/caregiver. Through initial baseline assessments, we are able to identify a parent’s initial skill set and use this information to inform how to deliver the training in remaining sessions.

SafeCare is delivered over 18 sessions that cover 3 modules:

  • Parent-Infant/Child Interaction that targets risk factors associated with neglect and physical abuse
  • Health that targets risk factors for medical neglect
  • Home Safety that targets risk factors for environmental neglect and unintentional injury

For further information about the SafeCare model, please visit the National SafeCare Training and Research Center at Georgia State University website:
