About the program

The Integrated Family Services Program (Bayside Peninsula) helps parents and carers to increase their parenting choices and the outcomes in their family life.

Our family services support families to manage a range of parenting problems that may be affecting their child’s development. Some of these issues can include:

  • parenting strategies and connections with your child
  • family conflict and/or breakdown
  • physical or mental illness
  • substance abuse
  • disability
  • social or economic disadvantage
  • isolation and lack of connection to your local community.
