Family Wellbeing Service

Family Wellbeing Service matches trained volunteers with families who have pre-schoolers, and teaches them parenting and domestic skills to reduce stress, and improve family confidence. The parent support worker is trained to pass on practical skills to help parents feel more confident, learn more about parenting and reduce stress in their daily lives. This can include skills such as parenting routines; time management; coping with stress; child health and well-being; family nutrition; menu planning; cooking and baking; budgeting; sewing and garment repairs; housekeeping/cleaning; and hygiene. Participants can set their own goals and work towards them with their volunteer over a period of three months. We know parenting can be tough, and we are here to help without judgement.
