Access to support services for families with new website

Sutherland Shire Family Services (SSFS) are very excited to announce the launch of our newly re-designed website –


The site’s user-friendly redesign has created a simple and easy way to seek information, designed to support families who need assistance in navigating the many challenges in family life. Details on the many services SSFS provide – such as the range of Support Services for Families, Domestic Violence Support, Youth Programs and Children’s Services such as our Djanaba Occasional Childcare service and Supported Playgroup at Jannali – can all be readily accessed in the new site.

It is hoped that the website becomes a valuable resource for families in the Sutherland Shire community, allowing them to access fact sheets and program information on our many support groups and parenting education courses. Diane Manns, Manager at Sutherland Shire Family Services said today,

We also wanted to give our service users and the wider community an opportunity to know the work we do in the Sutherland Shire and St. George areas and showcase upcoming events and activities.  Community members can also connect with SSFS through Facebook and the website with an opportunity to support our work through donations, as well as getting involved through volunteer opportunities.


Ultimately, the new-look website is designed to improve engagement with the community and users of our service. Focusing on our families and the safety of women and children in the Sutherland Shire remains our top priority.  Just as we have done for the past 27 years, we continue to be the safe haven for many families, helping them face their challenges by providing support and promoting change with dignity and hope.
