Run at Rotary Community Centre (34 North Parade Campsie) every Thursday during school term time, the Family One Stop Shop offers families an opportunity to access free financial counselling, legal advice, casework, parent education, disability support, counselling, and other services. We offer free child care to families attending appointments and run our regular free clothing and goods pool events from the Family One Stop Shop, along with a range of special projects and activities for those in need.
