New online resource for Blue Mountains families

By Blue Mountains City Council
Posted: 26 May 2022
While having children and starting a family is a joyful time for many, it also brings about seismic life changes which can be equally stressful, isolating and overwhelming.

Accessing support services and finding meaningful connections to others in similar situations is one way to minimise the pressures on young families and Council’s new Child & Family web portal can help families get connected to the activities and services available.

This new resource provides information on Council services, as well as the programs and activities provided by the local Child and Family services and community groups. This includes information about the diversity of playgroups to meet your needs – important for social contact and support for both parents and kids. It also helps with accessing the support mums and dads may need, either for themselves or their children, for when things get challenging.

Blue Mountains Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill said: “Local families now have an additional resource  that will assist them with making connections and finding the myriad of child and family services and facilities that the Blue Mountains has to offer.

“We want families to feel confident that they can come to this page and it will provide a launchpad to what they are looking for.”
