The Family Support Network connects families and young people at risk with support services

Communicare is the lead agency for the Fremantle-Rockingham Family Support Network (FSN), supporting families by assessing their needs, identifying risks, finding early interventions, and connecting them with the support services they need to be happy and healthy together. The FSN helps in the prevention of child abuse and neglect, building resistance for families, and keeping children out of out-of-home care whenever possible. Communicare deliver this program in partnership with the Langford Aboriginal Association.

The FSN provides two streams of support to families assisting them parent their children safely and divert them from the child protection system.
