Family and Community Services

Helping families achieve their full potential.

What is Family and Community Services?

Glastonbury’s Family and Community Services program offers a variety of services ranging from intensive in-house parenting support to short term trauma and torture counselling and peer support groups.

The primary focus is to provide support to families who need assistance in difficult and hard times.

Glastonbury’s Family and Community Services professionals work to create safe and stable environments for vulnerable children, young people and their families.

By building on strengths, we help families find solutions to improve their situation and assist them to stay together or reunify where possible.
