Family Support Services

What we do...

YFCC’s Family Support Services team aims to promote the safety, stability and wellbeing of children, young people and their families.

Part of the way we achieve this is through our membership of the North West Integrated Family Support Service (IFSS).

We work with families to identify their strengths and identify positive and sustainable solutions to challenges they may be facing.

Helping Young Parents Program

The Helping Young Parents program is a collaborative project between YFCC, Mission Australia and CatholicCare under the Communities for Children (CfC) program. The HYP program has been going for three years through CfC, and in August 2015, they introduced key workers from YFCC and Mission to provide an outreach component of the program. The referral process is directly to Key Workers and they offer support in whatever capacity is needed as it is a client based approach.
