Needing support to "Move Forward"
Seeking support to move forward as a single parent?
We are seeing more children growing up in single parent households. There is a myriad of circumstances behind these families stories, whether it be divorce, separation or death of a partner, to decisions to leave relationships due to domestic violence or substance abuse. See also our Men's Support page.
If this is your situation and you are looking for help, our service is here to support you.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
One of our Case Managers or Support Workers will meet with you to understand your unique circumstance.
We will then work with you as part of our Moving Forward Program, which provides our clients with access to:
A qualified Case Manager
They walk alongside you for the duration of the Program, assisting you to develop and achieve your individual Client Plan for moving forward. They seek to facilitate you acquiring learned behaviours along their journey - seeing possibility in adversity, goal setting, accountability for completing actions etc.
A schedule of speakers and training events
The schedule is tailored to the pool of current clients on the Moving Forward Program and will often include skills required for job readiness, supporting psychological recovery from Domestic Violence etc, specialist speakers on topics such as communication skills, parenting etc.
There are two ways to contact us:
Our team volunteer Monday - Thursday and will reply to you within 24 -48 hours of receiving your inquiry. Any enquiries received on a Friday or over the weekend will be reviewed and replied to on the Monday/ Tuesday.
One of our team will then call you to set up an appointment. They will also gather some details from you to assist with making this first appointment effective and hopefully enabling 'solutions' to be identified quickly to support you and your children.
