Family Futures South

Family Futures South is an outreach model of intensive family support and case management, based on the Newpin framework.  This is a therapeutic program which provides emotional and practical support to families with at least one child under the age of six. It supports and empowers families to break the cycle of child neglect and abuse and provide safe, nurturing environments for children, by engaging early in the life of the child.

Family Futures is available from Monday to Friday in general business hours.  The team are located at Newtown, however the program is fully outreached, meaning that parents can receive home visits at home, or meet the support workers in a suitable public meeting place.
