About Us

Wingecarribee Family Support Service has been working with families in the Southern Highlands for 30 years. We are a not for profit, non-government organisation which is community based and managed.

Mission

Our mission is to strengthen and support families and children to help build a community where children reach their full potential.

Services

Family Support offers programs and activities to all members of the community including young people, families and groups.

We provide assistance through educational programs, parenting workshops, events and activities. We also provide referrals to a range of specialist support services.

Wingecarribee Family Support Service provides services to the core Local Government Area (LGA) and partner with other health, and community services in areas outside the core LGA.

Who We Help

We can help families and carers who have full or part time care of a child. These families come from a variety of economic, social and cultural backgrounds.
