Finding and maintaining secure housing
Strengthening attachment with their children
Healthy child development
Improving living and tenancy skills including budgeting and managing finances
Navigating Child Safety involvement
Support with domestic and family violence
Linking in with other relevant services as required
Increasing social connection and support through the young families group
Young Families Group
Our young families group provides a safe space for young parents and children to connect and learn key skills to nurture their child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development.
This group runs weekly during the school term and provides an opportunity to combat social isolation and to provide a space for young parents to share experiences and support each other.
Our Young Dads worker can work with young dads individually to support them in their important roles as fathers and partners.
We can support dads through their transition to early parenting, with parenting skills and more generally with how they relate to those around them and their children.
Our Young Dads worker can help with housing, tenancy issues, legal or court matters, mental health and wellbeing as well as supporting young dads to engage and build great relationships with their precious babies/toddlers/children.
