Since 2012 we have supported over 1,500 families to make lasting change in their lives. Based in evidence, through peer to peer coaching and professional mentoring, families acquire the skills to build better lives.
The peer to peer, strengths-based approach of Family by Family creates the enabling environment for families to build a deeper sense of self, and create opportunities to set and meet goals.
This process creates the confidence and self-agency in both Seeking and Sharing Families which has resulted in changes in:
- Family support
- Educational attainment
- Employment and career pathways
- Health and wellbeing for parents and children
- Social Capital
At its peak the program has supported families in breaking cycles of intergenerational disadvantage.
