Ngartuitya is from the Kaurna language and means ‘for the Children’. Ngartuitya Family Group Conference Service enables families to make their own decisions about how they will all work together to ensure their child’s safety and promote wellbeing. Ngartuitya Family Group Conference Service allocates a Coordinator to each referred  family who has a focus on empowering families and community members to identify strategies to keep their own children and young people safe within family and kin.
