Step Up for Kids - keeping Canberra families together

From next month, Uniting will be providing new services for Canberra’s vulnerable under the ACT Government’s program for children in care called ‘A Step Up for Our Kids’.

What is ‘A Step Up for Our Kids’?
It’s a program that supports children and young people who cannot safely live with their parents.

The new services will focus on keeping families together, through practical guidance and support. An example of one of the new services is long-term, hands-on parenting training to help families stay together, thrive and have better lives.

Uniting will also deliver services that meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families through its ‘Jannimili’ team.
