Safe Hands Family Services (SHFS) aims to ensure that all parents and carers feel safe and supported whilst navigating their way through all of life's various stages - including the raising of well-adjusted, healthy, and happy children.

Through our ONLINE Groups & Programs, we cover many topics that support parents to navigate through the various life stages with their children and parenting journey, along with their personal relationships. We focus on a strengths-based philosophy to build self-esteem, improve on mental health and parenting outcomes, increase coping skills, encourage healthy communication, educate on healthy relationships, and much more.

Our program delivery and supports are predominately provided via our online platform. We have a membership platform, run courses and group programs, and offer wrap-around support in the form of parent coaching and psycho-education.

We're person-centered here. That means that we approach all our clients with respect, care, and due diligence. We're non-judgemental, authentic, and accessible. It's our aim that when you partner with Safe Hands, you're in safe hands.

Our hours of operation are flexible, as are our delivery options. We're more than aware of the need to run groups and programs around the business of life! Everyone is welcome here - we support all backgrounds and don't discriminate.

We run groups at night, on weekends, during the week, and sometimes in school holidays. Some groups will have childcare available, others won't (most will be run online anyway, and it will depend on the venue and availability for others). We're also constantly looking at changing needs and creating new products all the time.

Some of the evidence-based programs we run are: Circle of Security, 123 Magic, Triple P, Tuning in to Kids, Tuning in to Teens, Engaging Adolescents, Rock & Water to name a few (for a full list please see our program page click here). We also provide wrap-around, backup support for our attendees including parent coaching. We're here to help families thrive, not just survive. All of our services are bookable online - please navigate our menu, visit our FAQ page and register your spot today. All the answers to your questions should be here, but if you still need to contact us to ask us a question, please pop over to our contact us page, and drop us a line.
