Bayside Children’s Contact Service Fee Schedule

Most fees are to be paid prior to visit. Services and fees are as follows:

Intake & Assessment (paid on day of intake)

$80 (incl. GST) per parent

After receiving application forms from both parents we will contact each parent to arrange individual Intake & Assessment Interviews. This is a requirement prior to the use of any Contact Service. Download the BCCS online form.

Interviews are conducted separately with each parent to ensure confidentiality and safety. Each assessment takes approx. 2 hrs.

Family Life reserves the right to decline the use of the Bayside CCS if, through the assessment and/or service provision process the staff consider that the arrangement may pose an unacceptable risk to children, staff or other service users.

Payment for this service is to be made on the day of the interview.

Supervised visit (Midweek)

2 hour blocks $160 (incl. GST) per visit

After Intake & assessment has been undertaken with each parent, if this CCS service has been assessed as appropriate, parents can pay online for supervised visits.

Following receipt of payment the Service will contact you to arrange a convenient supervised visit time.

Supervised visit (Saturday, only on fortnightly basis)

2 hour blocks $220 (incl. GST) per visit

Saturday Supervised visits are available but only on every second Saturday of the month. Please confirm dates with us before making payment.

Cancellation Fees

Fees are applicable if a cancellation is made within 24 hours of the appointment. This fee may be waived if a Doctor’s certificate is provided.

Ad-hoc Correspondence

Payment is required for any ad-hoc correspondence requests, such as contacting lawyers, etc.
