How does Wungening Moort support children and families?

A culturally secure, responsive and practical service, we assist Aboriginal families to keep their children safely at home with loving family, community and culture.
We will visit you and your family at home (or somewhere comfortable) and help you to come up with a plan, supporting you to be the best parent you can. We will support you across the areas of:

  • Parenting and relationships
  • Budgeting
  • Cooking and nutrition
  • Family appointments
  • School support and homework time
  • Counselling and other supports

We will also support your family to make good decisions. We can connect you to other services to get support for alcohol and other drug use, family violence, health issues and any other concerns about your family.
