$40 million in grants for Family Support Services
A new place-based approach to supporting Territory families.
Territory Families, Housing and Communities (TFHC) has awarded $40 million in five-year grants to service delivery partners that keep children safe, and at home with their families.
Services will be predominantly delivered by Aboriginal-led organisations or by service partnerships that include Aboriginal-led organisations who know and understand the complex needs of at-risk children and families.
TFHC is committed to supporting Aboriginal-led organisations to lead the way in identifying their own aspirations and solutions and these grants will empower local communities to decide what form the services for their families should take.
TFHC has partnered with organisations that know and understand the needs of children and families to provide targeted, culturally safe and intensive support to families in times of need. Services will help keep children safe, thriving and connected to their families and community.
Grants have been awarded in Greater Darwin Region, East Arnhem, Barkly, Central, Big Rivers and Top End, where new providers will commence service delivery across late 2021 and early 2022.
