About this service

The 'Parents Building Solutions' approach provides the framework for all of our programs. We provide general parenting programs and those with a particular focus, like: parenting babies and toddlers, the primary years, parenting teens, groups for carers, groups for fathers, managing anxiety and programs for culturally and linguistically diverse and newly arrived parents. Beyond the Violence' is a program specifically for mothers and their children, who have been impacted by family violence. The program aims to establish safety, rebuild family relationships and assist families lives to move forward. This 8 week program includes a mothers group and children's group running simultaneously, with 20 mins of family time to conclude each session and some family support as needed.
