Bring innovative training to your workplace

As an organisation with nearly 50 years experience delivering innovative community services programs, we are passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise with other organisations to further serve the needs of individuals and families in our community.  We offer tailored training solutions to a variety of workplaces in the form of workshops, seminars and conferences.

Many of our professional clients choose to work with Family Life – and our social enterprise, Heartlinks – because of our focus on uplifting our community, in all its interlinking ways. When you choose to train with Family Life and Heartlinks, the profits fund our work with children, parents, families and individuals – resulting in a stronger, more resilient community.

Engaging Fathers
