Are parents allowed to visit the children at my home?

When you have developed a good relationship with a parent and the Department has approved the visits to your home then a parent may be able to visit you. It is important that you are open and willing for the visits to occur and for times to have been arranged in advance.

Fin WA always supports positive relationships between parents and carers and wherever possible for this to be encouraged. The better the relationship between the two parties the better outcomes there will be for children as they see the adults in their lives working cooperatively.

A major concern for many parents is the limited amount of contact they have with their children. If carers are open to having parents visit the children at their home this would provide many more opportunities for parents to enhance their relationship with their child.
