Alys Key Family Care is a Family Support agency that aims to facilitate change within families experiencing severe problems in rearing their children, so that parents are empowered to take control and responsibility for rearing their children adequately. The Centre was established by the Children's Protection Society (after the Society ceased to run the Victorian welfare-based Protective Service) as a 3-year Demonstration Project with a built-in research component. The research has not only enabled testing of the overall effectiveness of the service in meeting its stated goals, but has created a climate of questioning of practice within the area of Family Support.
