Families NSW

Families NSW is the NSW Government’s whole of government prevention and early intervention strategy for families expecting a baby or with children aged up to 8 years. The Families NSW Strategy is underpinned by a strong body of evidence demonstrating the importance of the early years in a child’s development and the long-term effectiveness of supporting parents and children during these years.

Families NSW is implemented through a range of evidence based service models known to be beneficial for children, families and the community. These service models include Universal Health Home Visiting, supported playgroups, family workers, Schools as Community Centres, volunteer home visiting services and parenting programs.
