Leaving your home and settling in a new country can place significant strain on family relationships. If you are a humanitarian entrant, and live in Western Sydney, we can help you.
Strength to Strength is a free family relationships program for humanitarian entrant families in Western Sydney. The people using our service include families recently arrived in Australia who may be experiencing difficulty in their relationships.
We can support you by discussing relationship issues, in your own language. We have Dinka, Arabic and Dari workers and we also use interpreters for other languages. Anything we discuss will not be disclosed to anyone else, without your permission, unless someone is unsafe. We also organise support groups for your community to provide information and fun activities.
Our service covers Auburn, Holroyd, Parramatta, Blacktown and the Baulkham Hills areas.
Strength to Strength Western Sydney is a partnership between Relationships Australia and Baulkham Hills Holroyd Parramatta Migrant Resource Centre.
We have an experienced team of Family Relationships support workers with qualifications and experience in Social Work, Psychology or Counselling. Professional supervision and on-going training are provided to all workers to ensure a high quality of service.
This is a free service.
Besides face to face individual and family sessions, we also organise group and recreational activities for our clients. We co-ordinate information and educational sessions on various relationship matters such as parenting, migration, grief and loss, handling emotions and healthy relationships.
