Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities programme


The Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC) programme is a 13-week programme for parents with children aged 3 to 18-years-old. Sessions are 3-hours long, once a week.

The course empowers parents and carers, helping them to forge positive relationships with their children and others.

You'll learn strategies and develop tools to:

  • build close and warm relationships with your children
  • foster self-esteem in your children
  • deal confidently with risky situations
  • avoid the dangers of inconsistent parenting
  • manage anger

The group shares their experiences and work together to find solutions with the support of the facilitators.

Information is provided for further support after the course has finished, and they will also be connected to community resources to further reduce the risk of isolation.

SFSC also provides a cultural framework to validate the historical and family experiences of different ethnic groups.
