Our Mission

Mission Statement

Family Support Newcastle promotes healthy, resilient children and young people growing in flourishing families in just and strong communities.

We contribute by providing services which promote the well-being of children and their families, individuals and communities. We particularly aim to reach those who experience ongoing hardship.


We provide services that include: 


  • Counselling and individual assistance either in the home or at a centre,
     
  • Therapeutic group programs with associated child development activities,
     
  • Supported playtime activities,
     
  • Community work,
     
  • Providing a family centre service with a therapeutic and community building focus,
     
  • Support to women leaving domestic violence.
     

We aim to work in ways that are mutually beneficial to families, staff and the whole community and that encourage participation of families and staff in decision making. Our work is built on a strong social justice foundation.
