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 Families Program

The Helping Young Families Program is a collaborative project between YFCC, Mission Australia and CatholicCare under the Communities for Children (CfC) program. CfC provides a variety of programs for families with children up to 12 years of age located in the Burnie region. In August 2015, CfC introduced key workers to their program, these key workers are from YFCC and Mission Australia and provide an outreach component along with support in areas of parenting, relationships, and education. Referrals are made directly to Key Workers, who have a client centred approach.
