Strengthening communities
and creating connections

Support for parents

JNC provides support for parents in our role to assist families living in the Randwick LGA. This support comes in several forms. For example, we can provide

  • casework
  • parenting resources
  • support groups

  • information and referrals

If you have relationship and domestic violence issues, JNC can assist. Similarly, we can support you if you have parenting issues or financial troubles.

Support for parents in our Indigenous Community

JNC offers culturally appropriate casework and support from our Family Support Worker and Aboriginal Community Engagement Facilitator. These specialist team members can provide emotional support and referrals, support with parenting, housing & Centrelink issues, help negotiating with other services, form filling, etc.  Phone 9349 8200.

Support for parents – courses

JNC runs free courses for families living in Randwick LGA with children aged 0-12 years. To register, you can email or call our Families Team on 9349 8200. And please note that bookings are essential. If you would like to join our mailing list please email us.

To keep you safe during COVID-19, many of our programs are being run online. It’s a new way of connecting, but flexible – you can log in from anywhere.
