Family support networks
All parents and carers need support at some point. Having a child can be isolating at times but it’s important for you and your family to stay connected to people around you and surround yourself with supportive networks.
We have a number of family support networks you can connect with to help avoid isolation and improve your family life.
This is a dedicated program that we offer through our Family Centres, bringing parents together to form local support networks through various groups and events.
The program focuses primarily on families with children from birth to eight years of age. Offered in our Quakers Hill, Westlakes, Dungog, The Hills and Riverstone family centres, the program is based on the principle that parents are their children’s first and most important teachers in life. Activities are designed to assist parents to participate more effectively in their child’s early development while their children learn through play-based activities.
