Working with families in a safe and supportive way

Families and relationships can be challenging.


Sometimes problems arise in families that aren’t easily resolved. Sometimes two parents cannot stay living together happily or after separation. Sometimes these kinds of challenges require intervention and advice to help maintain co-operative parent relationships, as well as strong parent-child relationships.


UnitingCare’s family relationships services work with intact and separated families to protect essential bonds between parents and their children in times of difficulty or separation in a safe and supportive way. Our services can help individuals, couples and families improve relationship skills, prevent family breakdown or help separated families come to parenting arrangements to support children to be safe and secure.
