What are Wraparound Services?
Wraparound Services are a specialized service available to support children and youth and their families with complex needs. Complex needs are defined as having concerns in more than one area (e.g. mental health and developmental services) and to avoid family breakdown.
These children, youth and families have exhausted all other community resources and require specialized services/supports to participate in activities of daily living, on a long-term, continuous and/or intermittent basis.
The Wraparound Service model includes partnerships, coordination of services, family support, individualized support, flexibility and ensuring services are family centred.
