We are pleased to confirm that we have been successful with our tender as lead agency for the Family Support Network (FSN) in Fremantle and Rockingham in partnership with Yorgum Aboriginal Corporation.


WA Family Support Networks are a partnership of community sector services and the Department of Communities, providing a common entry point to services and delivering earlier more targeted support to families. 

Family Support Networks provide integrated and coordinated secondary family support services to improve outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and families and prevent the need for tertiary child protection intervention. 

Services provided through the FSN are aimed at vulnerable and at-risk families to: 
  • Prevent child abuse and neglect; 
  • Prevent family problems from worsening; and 
  • Prevent placements of children in out-of-home care wherever possible.
Communicare is privileged to be continuing and building on the work of St Patrick's Community Support Centre and the many network partners in establishing and embedding the FSN in the community. We will be working alongside St Patrick’s staff, network partners and the Department of Communities to ensure a smooth transition. A proposed commencement date is 1st September 2018.​
