Who We Are

Maitland Family Support Inc is an early intervention not-for-profit community organisation that has supported families in the Maitland LGA since 1982.

 

We recognise that parenting and caring can be challenging at times and that families may want extra support. We work with families who are expecting a baby or already have children to improve their circumstances and capacity to parent through engagement in parenting programs, playgroups, social groups, home and centre-based visits, advocacy, case management, and information and referrals.

 

Maitland Family Support staff remain up-to-date with best practice parenting and caring topics so they can assist your family with issues that are relevant for you such as:

  • Confident and safe parenting

  • Becoming a parent

  • Bonding and attachment strategies

  • Developing routines

  • Effective management of challenging behaviour

  • Supporting your child’s physical and mental wellbeing

  • Recovering from family violence

  • Grief, loss or change

  • Feeling isolated and lacking support

  • and many more

 

Services are free unless clearly stated.
