Greater Falls Family Support Hub

Blackie River Community Group is the lead accountable body for the Family Support Hub in the Greater Falls Area.
The Family Support Hub is a network of organisations that can provide a variety of services for families who may benefit from some early intervention services; across the Greater Falls area.  Using the knowledge of local service providers and the Family Support Database, the Family Support Hub can signpost/refer families to services that they feel are appropriate to their needs.

Greater Falls Family Support Hub has 55 member organisations signed up to the hub who offer support to families, and since its beginning in September 2015 the Hub has processed over 700 referrals.
