We provide a wide range of support services

Our range of family support programs ensure services are available to support the well-being and nurturing of children and families, especially those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged. The programs help enable families to manage life transitions, ensure children are protected and contribute to building stronger, more resilient communities.

SpeakOut4Kids

SpeakOut4Kids aims to address, educate and respond to the issue of Domestic Violence within the Macleay Valley. It recognises the need for public education and awareness-raising campaigns on Child Protection to focus more on the impact of Domestic Violence on children and how it can affect them in later years.

The SpeakOut4Kids project incorporates:

  • Direct delivery of group work programs for women and children impacted by Domestic and Family Violence;
  • Provision of smooth referral pathways for children and families to resources, supports and other specialist service providers;
  • Public education and community engagement campaign to raise awareness of our shared responsibility in Child Protection.
  • Training to staff across a broad section of the family services sector

StayingHomeleavingviolence

Staying Home Leaving Violence

One of the reasons women return to violent partners is the difficulty in setting up a new life. Starting over in a new home, new area, new school, and new employment can be too overwhelming for women escaping violent relationships, especially when they have little or no support.

The Staying Home Leaving Violence program aims to prevent homelessness by working with NSW Police to remove the perpetrator from the family home so that women and children can remain safely where they are.
