Although there is some evidence about how the Family Relationship Services Program (FRSP) works in practice and with which groups, it is less clear how they work with more diverse and complex client groups. This project aimed to review the processes and models of collaborative practice currently in use by Family Relationship Service Providers in working with state child protection agencies, and to identify the likely impacts of these practices, processes and models on the safety and well-being of children.
