Getting Help

FAMILY SUPPORT

We work with families with children under 18 years that are experiencing crisis. Our Family Resilience Workers assist families in reaching their desired goals by breaking down barriers and building on your family strengths: we work with you to understand what support is needed, and to rally support around you as identified and agreed to by you.


COUNSELLING

DBNC has a counsellor available every weekday. Our counsellors are fully qualified, have years of experience working with the D’Bay community, and offer services to individuals, couples and families. One-hour private sessions are by appointment only.


CERTIFICATE TRAINING COURSES

DBNC offers Certificate I to III courses throughout the year. Courses vary, depending on local job demand and include certificate training, as well as job preparation. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for courses.

DBNC offers fully funded certificate courses for eligible participants through funding from the State Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.


PARENTING COURSES

Parenting from the Inside Out workshops are available periodically, for small groups. Delivered by DBNC in a relaxed and friendly style, this workshop supports families in everyday parenting. You’ll explore your parenting strengths, build a greater understanding of child development, attachment and behaviour, and explore communication strategies. This workshop can be followed up with Take 2 which builds on content from Parenting from the Inside Out.


ANGER MANAGEMENT COURSES

Take Charge of Your Anger: Manage Emotions to Improve Family Relationships workshops are available periodically, for small groups. This DBNC workshop explores anger, what lies beneath it, and how it affects the self, family and others. It supports you to discover strengths within yourself, as well as in significant relationships in order to create allies against anger.


FINANCIAL RESILIENCE SUPPORT

Individuals and families can access financial resilience support at the centre. Through our DollarSmart program residents are able to build budgeting knowledge and apply for no interest loans (NILS). For those experiencing financial hardship DollarSmart can support you to work with debtors on outstanding bills. One-hour private sessions are by appointment only. Group workshops are also held periodically, as advertised.


EMERGENCY RELIEF

DBNC offers residents who are experiencing financial stress with emergency relief supplies. Due to funding DBNC is limited to offering support such as milk and bread, nappies, essential prescriptions, sanitary products and bus passes. Where greater financial support is needed, we’ll refer residents to organisations that provide specialized assistance.
