National Families Week

All children deserve to feel loved and connected with their families.

On National Families Week, we spoke with dads in custody who participate in our craft workshops about what ‘Family’ means to them.

The theme this year was ‘Stronger Families, Stronger Communities’. We know this at SHINE for Kids, it’s why we work to strengthen and support families, set goals with them, and look to the future.

Stronger families mean reduced recidivism, better outcomes for children and, ultimately, contributes towards breaking the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage.

Thank you NSW Department of Communities and Justice for your support with this program.

Please donate to help us continue our work connecting and supporting families.

After an incredibly challenging few years, with restricted visits and the financial stress of the pandemic, families need us now more than ever.

Every bit counts.
