Child and Family Centres

Child and Family Centres Brochure [PDF 5MB]

Families with young children (birth to 8 years) are welcome to call the Child and Family Centres (CFC) and talk with an experienced Child and Family Worker about supports available for your family. Parents and carers can access a range of parenting groups and supports which are being offered face-to-face and are also available via telephone and on-line platforms. It’s best to make an appointment first so you can arrange a suitable time. COVID-19 hygiene requirements and social distancing measures are being strictly followed at each of the CFC sites for the safety of clients, visitors and staff.

Child and Family Centres services are available Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm. Please call:

  • Gungahlin Child and Family Centre: (02) 6207 0120
  • Tuggeranong Child and Family Centre: (02) 6207 8228
  • West Belconnen Child and Family Centre: (02) 6205 2904

Note: On 13 July 2020, the West Belconnen CFC was stood up as a COVID-19 Testing Clinic. From early February 2021 the West Belconnen Child and Family Centre will no longer be a COVID-19 testing clinic. The Centre will be returning to business as usual and the team looks forward to getting back and delivering more programs and support to families in West Belconnen. Families involved with the West Belconnen CFC are being contacted to let them know about the change. Visit the COVID-19 website for other clinic locations.
