The History of Keeping Kids in Mind
The original idea for KKIM dates to 2005 as a response to the need for a simplified post-separation referral pathway to family relationship services. The KKIM Program is operated by a consortium of Catholic Social Services Agencies (CSSA) working in the non-government sector. These agencies include: CatholicCare Sydney, CatholicCare Parramatta, CatholicCare Wollongong and Centacare Broken Bay. In June 2010, a Memorandum of Understanding was entered into by each organisation to formalise the partnership, creating what is known as The KKIM Consortium.
2008 saw the launch of The Keeping Kids in Mind (KKIM) Group. This was evaluated in 2009 by the Family Action Centre in the University of Newcastle. The evaluation showed that participants gained significantly from attending The KKIM Group. CLICK HERE to view the results!
In 2010 the KKIM Program began work on the development of the KKIM Case Management Implementation Project. This involved The KKIM Consortium working together to create an integrated Case Management Service. The KKIM Case Management Service was launched July 14 2011.
