What is CAF South?

What is CAF South I hear you ask, and before we joined their services we too would have asked the same question?

Child, Adolescent and Family Community Services (CAF) South Community and Outreach team is an outpatient service providing comprehensive psychiatric assessment and therapeutic intervention for children and adolescents 0-17 years (or older if still at school) in their family context.

This explanation was taken directly from their website, with further explaination of CAF Link as follows.

As well as providing an easily identifiable point of entry to services, CAFLink ensures better quality and more consistent information to referrers, young people and their families. Referrals are centrally processed and this includes screening, referral to community agencies and triage into the service.
