Raising a family can be one of the most challenging and rewarding things that we do. The Northern Centre understands the pressures, hurdles and stresses that many families encounter and we can support you and your family with a whole range of different services.

Under the new Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) program funded by DCJ (Department of Communities & Justice), our Family Support Team will deliver flexible support to families experiencing or at risk of vulnerability.

From setting boundaries and expectations with your children to guidance and support around managing family dynamics we offer individual support to build your confidence and skills around parenting to assist you though a number of approaches including personalised case management, counselling, parenting programs or supported playgroups. The length of time with us will depend on the complexity of your issue. To tailor the best service for you and your family, please call and ask for our Intake Coordinator.

Our parenting programs offer additional skills to help parents with raising their families. Most of our parenting programs are free of charge and we are able to offer limited childcare for many programs. Bookings are essential.
