Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is accredited by the Office of the Children’s Guardian, an independent government agency that works to protect children by promoting and regulating quality, child-safe organisations and services. We are a member of The Association of Children’s Welfare Agencies, also known as ACWA, and a supporter of The Australian Children’s Contact Services Association.
Established in 2001, we are experienced in the provision of specialist services to children and their families for Family & Community Services, Non-Government Agencies, Family Law Court Matters and Private Family Agreements.
Our focus is the wellbeing and safety of children while providing parents with opportunities to care for and engage with their children. These visits allow parents to demonstrate relationship and parenting skills.
Our qualified staff closely monitor contact visits in a supportive and positive way. We understand each family has a unique story and we seek to bring clarity and resolution whilst facilitating a service that is both safe and enjoyable for children and parents.
Areas include all Sydney Regions:
- Central Sydney
- Eastern suburbs
- North Shore & Northern beaches
- Metropolitan inner & outer West
- South West
- Blue Mountains
- Central Coast
We operate 365 days per year, on weekdays, weekends and public holidays.
PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes for the families we are working with.
We recognise that contact visits, whether court-ordered or by agreement, are an opportunity for families to maintain ongoing relationships or develop new ones. We give parents and significant others, with whom the children do not live, the opportunity to meet in a safe, relaxed and non-judgmental environment.
We have a strong focus on training and education for our personnel, as we understand there is a need to not only have the appropriate qualifications, but also an understanding of the complexities associated with family law court matters and the resulting conflicts.
