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 thoroughly enjoyed the day.

"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!"

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.

"Thank you so much for seeing us when things were at their lowest. We were feeling very lost and unsure about the next steps, and you made things so much easier. Thank you again for being there for my family when we needed help!"


"It was an incredible moment for me to be able to see and hold my baby girls again and I'm grateful for your guidance through the way things work at your centre. [TFSS] were very gentle and kind and that made the process that much easier and less intimidating."

"Establishing the relationship between my son and I felt very comfortable and at ease. There is so much I learnt because of the resources provided [from TFSS] that I can also implement in my home when the time comes. The staff were very patient and gentle with their approaches towards supervision."
