The ultimate goal of Primary School (Kids) FAST is to increase the likelihood of the child being successful at home, in school, and in the community. To achieve improved child outcomes, FAST fosters the central protective factor of family cohesion. Family cohesion is achieved through six intermediate goals:

  • Strengthening the parents
  • Building supportive relationships
  • Improve school behaviour and attendance
  • Increasing parental involvement on multiple levels, including social networks
  • Reducing the risk factor of daily stress and family conflict
  • Reducing the risk factor of substance abuse by the child and family
