How We Can Help

The Indigenous Family and Child Connect is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service for families that need some help.

Workers will listen and give you and your family a hand to get back on track by connecting you with the services you need. IFaCC will always ask a family’s permission before connecting them to a support service.

Workers can connect you to local services that can help with:

Supporting your Child’s Behaviour Needs.
Building Strong Family Relationships.
Increasing safety at home.
Housing, Health Care or other Government or Community Services.
Plan a Budget and Manage Money (bunguu).
Alcohol, Drug or Gambling Issues.

Program Benefits

Staff provide group activities and one-to-one support for children, young people and their carers/parents. Supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and their families is paramount to bridge the educational gap. We aim to increase and maintain attendance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people at school and other learning environments.

Our support ranges across the early years, primary, secondary, tertiary and vocational education communities. The program works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, grandparents, single parents, carers, students and their family members.
