Indigenous Family Support

The Aboriginal Family Support Program focuses on strengthening parenting and caregiving skills through supporting the spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual needs of urban Aboriginal children aged 0 to 6 years and their families. Program activities and services provide parents and caregivers with opportunities to learn about effective parenting strategies, child development, safety awareness and good life teachings, and be supported through the early parenting years

Each program will provide support and guidance within a cultural framework for parents, caregivers and children aged 0 to 6 to develop parenting and healthy lifestyle choices.
