Strengthening Family Connections is funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women to work with children, young people (unborn to 18 years old) and their families on the Capricorn Coast who are in vulnerable situations.
It is hoped that by building upon strengths, resilience and capacity of families, that this will improve the wellbeing and safety of children. Strengthening Family Connections adheres to the premise that families are often doing the best they can despite difficult circumstances. Our hope is to strengthen families so they can maintain the wellbeing and safety of the family unit.
Strengthening Family Connections embraces a holistic approach focusing on early intervention and prevention services. Our service operates from a strengths based framework recognising that all people have their own natural resources, strengths, talents, skills, life experiences and knowledge to draw from.
Services are offered to families at no cost and who are not currently subject to statutory child protection intervention
