Yarra Family Services provides a range of support services to families throughout the City of Yarra area.

We work with families with children aged 0-17 years, including pre-birth.

About two-thirds of the families we assist are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Our service promotes and protects the best interests of the children by building on family strengths, working with families to develop new skills and increase links with the local community.

We work with families who require support in areas including:

  • parenting concerns and managing children’s behaviours
  • family conflict and breakdown
  • physical or mental health issues
  • isolation
  • connecting to other services and providing information

For more information on these support services we provide or to seek assistance, please visit our website.
