Child and Family Services

Our programs aim to support children, young people and families by offering a range of activities.

These help to strengthen individuals needs and build stronger relationships within families and strengthen their connection to local communities.

Our programs are delivered by highly skilled staff who are committed to helping children, young people and families gain confidence and feel appreciated. Most of our programs are located at the Roundabout Youth Centre located in Sefton.
