Family Connect and Support

Family Connect and Support is a free service for children, young people and families of any cultural background.

Family Connect and Support helps children, young people and families in NSW with:

  • Parenting challenges
  • Financial stress
  • Substance use
  • Family breakdown
  • Housing issues
  • Mental health
  • Domestic and family violence

Through an initial consultation, we get to know you and your individual circumstances. 

Understanding your needs and building on your strengths, we identify the support your family needs to make positive change in your lives.

We’ll give you information and advice and help you connect to the services in your area so you don’t have to retell your story.

We stay connected with you until you’re matched with the right services or support.

Barnardos Australia is the service provider for the following districts: Western Sydney, Nepean Blue Mountains, Sydney and South Eastern Sydney. 

Barnardos Australia is also in partnership with CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay to cover the Northern Sydney district.
