Strong Families, Strong Communities Peer Program
What we offer…
Strong Families, Strong Communities Peer Program offers 12-weeks of peer-to-peer group support aimed to improve people’s wellbeing, create larger support networks, improve knowledge, and enhance self-esteem and confidence. This is a step-down model that is aimed at building lasting community supports and connections around families. In addition, to the peer-to-peer group program clients will be supported with case planning and case management that is culturally responsive, providing strengths based and trauma-informed one on one support. This program is run with the Australian Centre for Social Innovation.
Providing connections within community in a spiritually, socially, and emotionally safe environment is the foundation of this program as strengths are harnessed within families and communities. The program recognises that families are the experts in their own lives and community is rich with expertise in providing support for families and providing opportunity to journey together.
- The service is for families with children aged birth to 18 years
- At least one parent or child is Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
Referrals to the program can come from non-government organisations, family, community, and self-referrals.
