Welcome to Families NSW
The Families NSW website provides parents and carers with information on a wide variety of services for families in NSW, and how families can access them.
We all want our kids to have the best start in life, and our families to have the safety, security, health and other services they need.
The NSW Government is committed to ensuring that services are directed to families when they need it, as well to raising healthy and happy kids. That’s good news for the whole community.
