The Family Wellbeing Service is a free service that works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island families and communities to provide culturally responsive support to promote overall health care and improve social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and build the capacity to safely care for and protect their children.
Our service works to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children in their family’s home and community to reduce the risk of our children entering or re-entering the Child Safety and Youth Justice Systems.
We work across the Child Safety and Youth Justice systems from early intervention and prevention, through all current interventions and aim to provide continued support to families after Child Safety and/or Youth Justice Interventions.
Some of the programs we deliver are Family Wellbeing Service Men’s Group and Youth and Family Connecting in Mount Isa as well as Playgroup in Normanton.
We partner with other Gidgee Healing programs, organisations and the community to deliver activities, programs and services in the North West and Lower Gulf region.
