Family Support Networks are a partnership between community sector services and the Department of Communities. They provide a common entry point to services, and deliver earlier and targeted support to families with complex problems most vulnerable to involvement with the child protection system.

FSNs operate across the metropolitan area in four service area corridors and are managed by a lead agency from the community services sector. Through formal partnerships with other local family support services (called FSN partner agencies) they form an FSN alliance of agencies in their corridor.

The FSN alliance enables an integrated and coordinated service approach providing support to families.

Services provided include family support and counselling, parenting support, homelessness services, family and domestic violence services and community support.
