Families NSW is the NSW Government’s overarching strategy to enhance the health and wellbeing of children up to 8 years and their families.
Families NSW is the joint responsibility of three government agencies, working together to make a positive difference for children and families. These agencies are:
The FNSW Learning & Development Project is funded by the Department of Family and Community Services . Its aim is to enhance the capacity of workers, services and networks to support families in children’s early years (0‐8).
The project structure consists of two Learning & Development Projects, FNSW Nepean L&D Project covering the Penrith, Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Lithgow regions and FNSW CBBH L&D Project covering Cumberland, Blacktown, and Baulkham Hills regions.
Training is provided to enhance FNSW workers skills to:
- help parents to build their skills and confidence in parenting
- support parents and carers so they can respond to problems early
- build communities that support children and families
- improve the way agencies work together to make sure families get the services they need.
