raising children? 

We can support families through challenging times.

Our services for families can assist you to better manage life’s ups and downs so your children can live safe, healthy and happy lives.

We support children’s wellbeing by helping you build strong parenting skills and stronger families.

One of our key goals is helping you feel confident and connected to your community. This can support your children’s developmental needs.

If your family is at risk of child safety intervention, our FFT-CW® therapists might be able to offer you short-term family-based therapy.

Therapists work with families over four to seven months to create change that will assist everyone to function in a more positive and productive way.

The program starts by looking at your family’s strengths and what is working to keep your children safe.

FFT-CW® can help your family solve current problems and develop new strategies, skills and confidence for resolving future issues.

Who is eligible?

Families from the Browns Plains and Beaudesert areas and surrounds who need additional support to keep their children safe and well.

Our Step by Step team works with young parents to help them meet the challenges of being good parents.

The team provides information and advice on how to help your children as they grow, and practical help with things like school enrolments, budgeting and housing applications.

We also offer counselling and group programs, helping you connect with people in a similar situation. 

Our aim is to back you to come up with strategies to improve your relationships and your family’s well-being.
