Impact Communities

Families And Schools Togther (FAST)

Families And Schools Togther (FAST) is funded for families who have children in the 0-12 age group. It is funded by the Salvation Army Communities For Children initiative.

FAST is a family-strengthening program working with families and communities. Families partner with a local team, schools and community agencies so that children can grow up to succeed. Success is achieved through strengthening relationships between parents and children; between families; and with families, schools, and other community agencies.

FAST is funded for the Brighton and Derwent Valley municipalities until June 2020. By contacting Impact Communities we can explore the possibility of running FAST in other areas.
