Family Wellbeing

Help for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to get through tough times and keep their kids at home with their family.

This service is available in:

  • Bundaberg
  • Emerald
  • Hervey Bay
  • Longreach
  • Rockhampton
  • Woorabinda

How can we help you and your family

Our service is a free service that aims to improve the social, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children in their homes, families and community reduces the risk of our children entering or re-entering the child protection system.

Limited brokerage is available to support families, but must be linked to case plans before funds can be released. The brokerage funds cannot be used for any emergency financial relief.

There’s no shame in asking for help

We are here to help you and your family, and we all need help at times.

There is no shame in asking for help, one of our friendly staff are happy to yarn with you about services you can access. Our service is confidential and we will always seek your permission before we share any information with other services.

The only time we need to breach confidentiality is if a child’s safety is at risk.

Am I eligible?

We work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families from unborn to 18 years of age. Consent is required for us to work with you.
