Families Plus
Looking after your family is a big job.  At Family Support Network we recognise that for parents raising children and managing multiple responsibilities is often a juggle.   In recognition of this Family Support Network is offering a series of informative, educative and practical skills sessions to help parents and carers balance the many challenges of raising children and providing for their family.

Sessions will include tips and support for managing the family budget, returning to education and work, maintaining work life  balance,  family activities, getting to know the resources of your local community, building resilience and many other practical and informative topics. Helen would love to hear your ideas for topics that could be added to the program, ph 02 66212489 extension 109.

What parents are saying about our Parenting Groups:

“I have learned how to listen to my children. I have made different choices as a Dad.
Counting and time out are working well.”

“We got positive feedback and validation about our parenting and will continue working with what we have learned.”
