Save the Children

Save the Children Australia provides quality education programs, with a focus on early childhood care and development, parenting and family support. Katherine programs include;


Play2learn is a supported playgroup program which aims to improve early childhood development, parenting skills and connection to community amongst parents who attend the playgroup. The group is for families with children 0-5 years and is delivered by qualified Early Childhood and Family Support workers.

Intensive Family Support Service (IFSS):

The IFSS program is a community and home-based program created for families who have children at high risk of removal under the NT Child Protection Act; to work with and help these families improve the health, safety and wellbeing of their children. Referral pathways include NT Department of Territory Families, other community service organisations and self-referral. Please note that referrals from Territory Families take precedence.

Intensive Family Preservation Service (IFPS):

This is based on the same model as the IFSS program, but works with families for a shorter and more intensive time period. It is available to all families with children aged 0-18 years of age, who have been assessed by Territory Families as being at “high” to “very high” of having their children removed under the NT Child Protection Act.  Referral pathway: via the NT Department of Territory Families only.
