We assist families with children aged up to 18 years (including those with unborn children) living in the local government areas of:

  • Melbourne
  • Moonee Valley
  • Maribyrnong
  • Hobsons Bay
  • Brimbank
  • Melton
  • Wyndham

With a focus on building strong, flourishing families, our goal is to give parents the skills and confidence they need to raise healthy, happy children in a loving home environment.

Our support is:

  • practical (parenting education/skills development and household management strategies)
  • emotionally supportive (building on and developing existing relationships and strengths)
  • culturally sensitive (connecting families with cultural groups and services in their communities)
  • community focused (facilitating access to other community support services, if needed).
