Information for Participants


Life and relationships can get difficult for all of us at times. The Family Centre’s services are for children, young people, and families, and anyone in a family relationship.

During difficult times, we can assist with accurate information and referral to the services you may need. We can also help you to set goals and make plans to achieve them, develop life and relationship skills and the knowledge you need to resolve individual, family and community concerns. No matter how big or small your problems may be, you can talk with us.

At The Family Centre, we place you at the centre of planning and decision making. Our staff can directly support you to make choices that best meet your needs and aspirations, or with the assistance of interpreters, advocates and appropriate written / visual materials.

We work together with our community to design activities that enhance parenting skills, improve relationships, and increase safety, wellbeing and personal effectiveness. Our activities increase and strengthen family and community connections.

We’re a diverse and inclusive organisation driven by our values and practice principles that focus on building individual and community capability to develop solutions to social problems. Everyone has the ability to make a positive contribution to their community, and we support the identification and expression of this contribution for the benefit of all.

We encourage and inspire people to make the changes they want for themselves, their family and their community.

We welcome all cultures at The Family Centre. If you have any particular cultural or other needs, please let us know.

The Family Centre is a local social purpose, community owned organisation established in 1988 and based on the North Coast of NSW.
