About the role
The aim of the Keeping It Together program is to identify the contributing factors that lead to family breakdown and family violence and assist families to identify and address these issues before they result in issues of emotional distress or violence. The information provided assists the participants to increase their awareness and understanding of the prevalence, patterns and causes of unhealthy relationships and provides skills that are necessary to deal with the issues that place pressure on relationships. The program is not provided in isolation, clients would be linked in to our other program areas such as financial counseling, social work and emergency relief as appropriate.
