Family Referral Service
Parenting can be a tough gig… Family Referral Service is your link to support.
The Family Referral Service connects families who need a helping hand, to the support services and community resources which can assist them.
The Family Referral Service (FRS) brings together families, support services and community resources so that our children and young people are safe and well.
We can work with families to look at what challenges they are facing and what their support needs are and then we can find the most appropriate services to meet their needs.
If you are a young person or family with children, or an extended family member, we will listen to your needs and connect you to support services and community resources to help.
The FRS can help if you are having difficulties with:
- Domestic violence experiences
- Housing or accommodation access
- Financial assistance
- Counselling and mediation
- Parenting struggles
- Mental health concerns
- Finding culturally appropriate support
We can connect you with:
- Employment, education and training services
- Domestic violence services
- Access to Government services and community organisations
- Family support services
- Intensive family support
- Drug and alcohol services
- Mental health services
- Finding culturally appropriate support
- Other support options
