Thriving communities, endless possibilities.

Welcome to TFSS, we're here for you.

We are a non-government community based organisation that has delivered services to families in the Tamworth region for more than 30 years. Our organisation is supported by a team of more than 90 staff working across all the programs we offer in various locations such as Tamworth, Quirindi, Manilla, Gunnedah, Narrabri, Inverell and Barraba. TFSS is proud to now offer twenty one funded programs, including Government funded programs that are free for our community. As an organisation, TFSS aim to provide help and support to people in need to ensure thriving communities with endless possibilities.




Success Stories

"TFSS ran an Aboriginal Cultural Tour as a school holiday activity with Len Waters for some children. Len spoke about Aboriginal meeting places and the paintings at Boundary Rock. During the tour the children got to do art work using ochre. The tour concluded at Marsupial park with information about native animals. The children enjoyed the day so much staff are planning another cultural day for the next school holidays."

Aboriginal Cultural Tour

"It is difficult to express the true impact of your service in my life and the lives of my children. Needless to say, I am more grateful than I can say for your care and assistance through all my visits, and even though I am hopefully going on to better things, I will miss the atmosphere and ambience of the Centre, which was very child-focused and easy to engage in!"

Children's Contact Service Client

It has been nice to observe that a family, where both mum and child are very shy and quiet, has started to come out of their ‘shell’. They are both starting to interact with others. The parent has started to talk to other parents and contribute in discussions, and the child has been interacting with other children as they are developing friendships, through play.

"I moved back down to Tamworth in March this year and got connected to Carmel at TFSS. She’s an absolute gem. I don’t know where I would be without her. With support from TFSS, I got the confidence to apply for a rental, which I was accepted for, along with my therapy pet."

[In response to the success of the Steve Biddulph 'Raising Boys' Talk] We have never had such a strong response to an online event! Almost 2,000 people enrolled for this event on Raising Boys. Thanks to the team at TFSS.  We hope to see well raised boys across the New England region for many years to come!"
