ACORN parent-infant attachment group
An attachment-based group for mums struggling with their mental health, and their children aged birth to 3 years. This group is structured to strengthen your relationship with your child through experiences of shared play, music and movement, and some parent-only time for reflection. A referral from your health professional is needed to attend ACORN.
This group is facilitated and supported by AnglicareSA.
Sessions run from 9.30am to 11.30am once per week. Days may vary from term to term. Please check our program for this term's sessions.
If you would like to know more about the group or referral process, please call Louise Byrne at Anglicare on 8131 3485.
Family by family
If your family is going through a hard time, this program can connect you with another family who knows what it's like. They will be able to offer you support and ideas to help you through.
Every Thursday during term time, 9.30am to 11.30am. Other sessions may be running so please check our program.
For more information on receiving support, or if your family has something to offer another family:
We all need a little help with our finances from time to time. Our financial counsellor can help you with your budgeting, bills, concessions, Centrelink payments, child support, debts, loans, and any other financial concerns.
Appointments are available every Thursday morning, 9.00am to 11.00am.
To make an appointment or to find out more, call Anglicare on 8209 5492.
