Family Services

What are Family Services?

Our Family Services aim to increase the safety and wellbeing of children and young people and strengthen family relationships.

Who is it for?

To be eligible for our service you need to be a Tweed Shire resident and a member of a family with a dependent child or young person aged 0-17 years. This is a free service.

How do we work with families?

Families are offered an initial assessment interview, where support workers assist family members to identify their strengths and needs in relation to presenting family issues.
We then assist families to develop goals that indicate how they would like things to be in their family. Once goals are determined we negotiate a support plan with the family, outlining how we can assist them to achieve their goals.
The support plan guides and provides a focus for our work with families. This includes: counselling, enhancing parenting and relationship skills, providing information about services and helping you access those services.
We also provide a range of courses for children, young people and parents. See our course program here for details.

When & Where?

Family workers can meet with families and family members at our centres in Tweed Heads South, Murwillumbah and Ballina, in your home or at other agreed locations. Our courses are provided at various locations. See our course program for details.
