Woolloongabba Family Wellbeing Service
The Family Wellbeing Service (FWS) is a First Nations human services program that aims to improve the health and safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families.
The program supports families to increase their capacity through strengths-based, person-centred practices while exploring, building and maintaining connectedness to identity, culture and community.
The concept of the FWS derived from the community’s request for a holistic service with a strong focus on culture.
Our team can help you with:
- practical services that address a specific need in the family, such as assistance with specialist allied health appointments, establishing daily routines related to meals or getting to school or respite care
- personal support and development including information and advice, parenting skills courses, budgeting and household skills development
- clinical or therapeutic services include casework, counselling, emotional support, family mediation, anger management, domestic violence intervention programs, development of social supports
- enabling services to link the family to other supports via referral and advocacy (e.g. assist with access to housing, child care, emergency relief payment, rental assistance) and case management to coordinate service delivery.
We accept referrals through the family and child connect online.
