Family Support Service

Parenting is the only job you will ever do where you are expected to be on call 24/7, never get holidays and are expected to carry on as normal, even when you are ill!
Each stage of your parenting journey will present different challenges but those first few years are arguably some of the most difficult. When you add hormones, sleep deprivation and exhaustion into the mix it is no wonder parents of young children often feel stressed and overwhelmed.
Some parents may have a supportive partner or family members living nearby who can offer help and support. If not, our Family Support Service can help.
Our Family Support Workers can visit you at home to support parents and children in many ways.
The type, frequency & duration of support offered will depend on your individual situation but we will assess your needs and come up with a plan to support you.
To request support, please contact Julia, our Family Support Coordinator on 91819722.
