The Village Family Support Program provides support services so that families and communities are valued and supported to nurture children to achieve their full potential.
The Village Family Support Program provides a range of centre based support services to families, children, and young people. The service has a prevention/early intervention focus and is available to all families in the community.
The Village Family Support program aims to equip parents and carers with information, skills and strategies that will increase their ability to nurture and care for their children. The services will be delivered to clients through group activities (e.g. parenting courses, information sessions) and on an individual basis (e.g. information about available services, case management). Where issues are identified that fall outside the scope of the family support program (e.g. mental health, drug and alcohol, domestic and family violence) the service provides information and referral to specialist agencies where possible.
