What is Families NSW?
Families NSW is a prevention and early intervention strategy to help parents give their children a good start in life. This means supporting families during pregnancy and in the early years of a child's life, when development is rapid. The aim of Families NSW is to build the capacity of parents and carers, through a coordinated network of services, to raise their children and help them solve problems early before they become entrenched.
