Youth & Family Support

Family Support Services
Family Support Services work closely together with vulnerable families in the Wauchope and Port Macquarie communities to deliver a range of programs which ensure children are safe, families are supported, skills are developed, and a sustainable support network is nurtured. Programs can be adapted to meet family and community needs.

Parenting Programs
Circle of Security Parenting (COS-P) helps caregivers connect with the children in their lives.
Tuning in to Kids Parenting teaches simple emotion coaching skills so parents can recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in a supportive way.
Stepping Stones is a specialised Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) for parents/carers of children 2-12 years who have specific concerns about their child’s development.

Family Worker Home Visiting Program provides support to families with children for a period of up to three months. Support may include developing skills in guiding children’s behaviour, responding to children’s emotions and addressing issues that could be impacting on the family wellbeing (for example health, relationships, parenting skills, finances, accommodation or isolation).

Port Macquarie Youth Hub

The Youth Hub supports youth and young adults aged 12 to 25 years across the Port Macquarie-Hastings area, building their self-esteem through a platform based on friendship, health, education and community support.

The Youth Hub provides drop-in and welfare services as well as supported group programs. Sometimes live music nights are organised to give young, local musicians the opportunity to perform live for friends, family and the community.

Programs are designed to support vulnerable youth in the community by providing a connection with others, developing living skills and receiving mentorship. Programs delivered through The Youth Hub includes fitness and activity groups, homework support, food connect, health and nutrition groups and The Fathering Project, which is a support group for single dads.

The Hub’s shower and laundry facilities provide the homeless with a place to have a shower, wash their clothes and connect with the Youth Hub staff. The Youth Hub accepts all self referrals, as well as referrals through agencies like Centrelink, St Vincent De Paul, the Salvation Army and New Horizons.

The Youth Hub space is also used regularly by a variety of community groups such as ‘People Builders’ youth group, Zumba fitness, the Filipino community, Hastings Youth Network, school groups and other service providers such as Family Support Services Parents and Playgroup.
