Services for Women and Families

Supporting and Empowering Women and Families

Our Women & Families Team (part of the Community Engagement division) offer services and programs to help parents and families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD) to raise happy and healthy families.

We support and empower parents who are expecting a baby and families with children up to eight years of age who live in the Blacktown and Penrith local government areas. The Family Support Program is funded by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ).

Supported Playgroups are held during school terms for parents, grandparents, carers and their children aged up to five years. Parents engage with their children in a range of fun and educational activities like Story Time, Rhyme Time, Art & Craft, etc.

Tuesdays, 10 am to 12pm
SydWest office, Ground Floor, Suite 1, 125 Main St Blacktown

Our Women’s Support Groups for women in the Blacktown and Penrith local government areas are a great way for women to meet up and share with others while their children are cared for in adjoining rooms. This gives parents a break and the chance to discover more about parenting in a supportive environment. They are also a great way to build a parent’s social network.

Each term, Support Groups have regular information sessions on health and wellbeing, education, raising families, parenting, creative arts and more

We have six groups that meet during the school terms:

  • All Group meetings are also listed in the Activities Calendar online.
  • Visit the Activities Calendar for the latest information and school term sessions.

Our team can link and refer families to other service providers to address their specific needs.

Our qualified and experienced team can visit new parents in their home to support them and ensure they are connected.

Our team supports emerging communities to understand their issues and responding with appropriate information sessions and referrals.

We work to bring communities together through special events such as Mother’s Day and International Mother Language Day, to bring our families together.

As well, we encourage our clients to participate in community events to strengthen their connection to their local community.

By working with culturally and linguistically diverse women and families, our team is qualified to provide cultural information to other service providers to help them become more culturally knowledgeable and responsive to the needs of the community.

Our team coordinates a range of high-profile events during the year, including International Women’s Day and Family Fun days. As well, they work with our client families to celebrate key cultural events during the year, such as Ramadan, Diwali, Harmony Day and Refugee Week.

As part of the ongoing work that SydWest does to address domestic and family violence, we have been coordinating the CALD Domestic Violence Prevention project for the past few years, working with local community ambassadors to equip them with knowledge and networks to support people in their community to seek help.

Our new project offers up to four (4) weeks of case management support for people on a temporary visa.

Support includes temporary financial assistance and general casework.

The program is available until end September 2020.
