Eastlakes Family Support Services Inc. - Hansard


I congratulate Eastlakes Family Support Services Inc. on its work. Eastlakes Family Support Services is a non-profit organisation supporting families and dependent children in the Lake Macquarie area. This longstanding organisation provides free and confidential support, counselling and parenting strategies to families and individuals in one-on-one or small group settings. Eastlakes Family Support Services receives funding through the Department of Family and Community Services and the Department of Fair Trading to provide early intervention support services, financial counselling and support for women experiencing domestic violence.

Partnering with the Samaritans, Eastlakes Family Support Services delivers the Brighter Futures Program, which supports families with children aged zero to eight years who have been identified as at risk of re-entering the child protection system. At-risk families are supported to develop positive relationships with their children and avoid re-entering the child protection system. I commend the hard work and ongoing success of all involved with the Eastlakes Family Support Services.
