Most of our services are free of charge to families. You are welcome to attend our playgroups, browse the resource and brochure library, have a chat with the Family Centre staff, attend special parenting events and information sessions.
Any member of a family can contact us by phone (6621 2489) or in person whenever information or support is needed or when they are concerned about how their family is managing.
Another service or agency could contact us on your behalf or you can refer yourself. Other services can download our Referral Form (54kb Word Document). Or Referral_form 230kb pdf. If you'd like to recieve occasional emails about our services, sign up to our mailing list here.
Initially you will speak with our intake officer who will assess if our service is able to support your family’s needs. If not, we will link you to a service that can assist. If we are able to assist, you will be allocated a family worker to work with you directly. Our Family Worker will contact you within 2 weeks to organise an appointment. If you urgently need help, try some of our links here.
The Family Worker will then work with you and your family to develop goals for how the family would like things to be. The worker will assist your family to achieve those goals. The Family Worker can meet with you individually or with your family in your home or at our premises, or other agreed locations.
