We are extremely grateful to The Trusts Community Foundation for a substantial grant to support our work with South Otago families in need.
We offer home-based social support services to children and families throughout the South Otago region. Each family has different needs and goals, but support can include providing positive parenting strategies, advising on the needs of children at each age and stage, advocating on behalf of families, or connecting families to vital supports in the community.
Jane Hutton, the Anglican Family Care Team Leader for the area said, "This is fantastic news for local families. We provide practical support and guidance to people who are living in difficult circumstances to ensure their children are safe, health and happy. This grant will help make a real difference to local families throughout 2018."
All our services are free. Parents, or healthcare professionals or community workers acting on behalf of parents, can make referrals by email, or by calling 0800 FAM CARE (0800 326 2273).
