Are you a young person aged under 18? Do you need help to connect you and/or your family to support?

Family Connect and Support (FCS) is a service that can help you and your family connect to the right services and supports at the right time. FCS is available across NSW.

  • Things aren’t ok at home.
  • You don’t know where to turn for help.

FCS is free, and you get to decide if you want to talk to them. An FCS service provider can connect with you wherever you live.

How can FCS help me?

FCS will:

  • listen to you to understand your situation
  • ask what you would like to happen next
  • give you information
  • connect you to services that can help

What happens with my information?

FCS can work with you on your own, or with your family members depending on your situation.
