Families and Children

FAMILIES NSW

“the best start in life”

Families NSW (FNSW) is a prevention and early intervention program that aims to provide children with the best start in life. This is achieved by supporting families expecting a baby or who have children up to 8 years old.

Families NSW offers the following services:

  • supported playgroups – providing an opportunity for parents to share experiences of parenting and for children to socialise, play and learn in a structured and positive environment
  • family support – working to improve the outcomes and well-being of families with young children by providing support for parenting, and facilitating informal support groups and access to appropriate services
  • community capacity building – community-based projects aiming to strengthen the connections community members make with local services available to them
