Helping schools and communities with Family Life

One of the best ways to strengthen families and help individuals is by connecting them with their communities. Children need the support of a strong vibrant community where families feel connected, particularly during tough times.

Family Life’s suite of Creating Capable Communities programs aim to bring communities together to facilitate change and improve the wellbeing of all members.

Why do Communities matter?

When it comes to the health and well-being of your child, communities can make a major difference. Family Life recognises that integrated services with wrap around supports are critical, equally important is the role of the community to support one another for lasting positive change.

A strong community can help you and your child:

  • Develop a sense of belonging
  • Access opportunities to learn and work
  • Find support when they need it
  • Build friendships with others in a safe space
