Family Connect and Support (FCS)
Family Connect and Support (FCS) is a phone and in-person service that provides advice and links families, children and young people in need of assistance, with services and other community support in their local area.
FCS is operated by Marymead in partnership with MacKillop Family Services in nine NSW Local Government Areas. Those being Palerang Regional (Queanbeyan) Council, Yass Valley, Goulburn Mulwaree Council, Upper Lachlan Shire, Eurobodalla Shire, Bombala Shire, Snowy River Shire, Cooma-Monaro Shire and Bega Valley Shire.
Being a young person or parent is not always easy and there are times when we could all use some help. FCS listens to your needs and refers you to the right service, which could help you with the following:
· Domestic violence experiences
· Housing and accommodation access
· Financial assistance
· Counselling and mediation
· Parenting support
· Mental health concerns
· Finding culturally appropriate support
There are many other services that you might need and the FCS can help you to find the right one.
FCS is funded by the Department of Communities and Justice.
