Family Support Services
Sitting around and learning about the yolŋu environment
Finding strength within our Yolŋu families
Our Yolŋu team will be working with families across communities of Galiwin'ku, Milingimbi, Gapuwiyak and Ramingining and their homelands to support families that have been referred to the FSS and will support them on a case management model.
Family support involves providing support and assistance to families to:
help them keep their children safe, at home
reunify children in care with their birth family
support pregnant mothers to grow up healthy and safe children
Include the positive involvement of men as fathers to build and strengthen their connection with their children.
Family support involves two primary forms of service and support:
providing practical support in the family home and in families’ daily lives to help them build parenting skills and maintain a safe environment for children to grow up at home
Connecting and referring families to the services they need and supporting their progress towards success
