Parenting Support

Parenting Support

IMPACT Community Services' Positive Start parenting support service is for mums and dads or carers with children aged up to 12 (18 in special cases) who need a little help and support.

If you need advice, have a few questions or simply want to meet other parents in a relaxed and supportive environment, then Positive Start is for you.

IMPACT's support worker will work with you to develop life and parenting skills, offer advice on other community services available to you and provide a safe and child-friendly environment you feel comfortable in.

Family networks, friends and mentors are welcome to come to IMPACT with you if this is what you want.

IMPACT really helped me

IMPACT really helped me

I found it difficult to get a home because I had no rental history. But IMPACT helped us out a lot, printed out all the papers we had to sign, and they even took them in for us.
